Renal stones are a common clinical finding. We present the rare case of nephrocutaneous fistulization following a longstanding history of asymptomatic nephrolithiasis. Fistula formation is typically associated with recent abdominal surgery, xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis or tuberculosis. Due to unique circumstances this patient was unwilling to engage in conventional surgical options leading to the involvement of Interventional Radiology for percutaneous stone extraction with the placement of an abscess drain under fluoroscopic guidance.
