Urinothorax is a rare cause of pleural effusion, and is typically the result of either obstructive uropathy or injury to the kidney or urinary tract either traumatic or iatrogenic. A case of moderate pleural effusion in a post-operative patient of percutaneous nephrolithotomy and cystolithotripsy is being reported here. The patient was referred back for surgical repair which resulted in resolution of the pleural effusion.
