Abstract

We describe the case of a 60‐year‐old man with a ureterocolic fistula following laparoscopic sigmoid resection. The fistulous tract between the left ureter and sigmoid colon was detected by mercaptoacetyltriglycine diuretic renography including single photon emission CT with low-dose CT. Ureteroneocystostomy was successfully performed.
