A 14-year-old girl presented with left renal colic. The patient had undergone endoscopic treatment for left grade-3 vesicoureteral reflux 8 years earlier. Ultrasound [Figure 1] and computed tomography scan [Figure 2] demonstrated a radio-opaque lesion at the left vesicoureteric junction region.[1],[2] Cystoscopy and ureteroscopy were normal. Awareness of late calcification following endoscopic treatment is essential.
