Delayed hematuria following blunt trauma is rare but can be significant. We describe an unusual delayed presentation of renal arteriovenous fistula following blunt trauma.A gentleman presented with hematuria and clot colic. Following initial investigations, renal arteriography showed an arteriovenous fistula in the mid-pole of the right kidney. The fistula was successfully occluded by super-selective coil embolization. Although this case is an unusual presentation, AV fistulae must be ruled out in management of patients of hematuria.
