Abstract
 
Spontaneous renal hemorrhage is a rare and potentially lethal condition. We report a case of a 77-year-old male with sudden, severe renal hemorrhage immediately following transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) applied to his back for chronic pain related to ankylosing spondylitis. To our knowledge, this represents a newly described potential cause of renal hemorrhage.
