Renal injuries are commonly reported in blunt abdominal trauma and are usually associated to other abdominal injuries. Renal rupture may be misdiagnosed and its management, especially in severe lesions, is still controversial. We describe the case of renal rupture diagnosed in the Emergency Department and conservatively managed. The outcome was good thanks to the early diagnosis and the management of the renal trauma. Conservative management in renal rupture is possible in stable patients provided that the imaging is early done.
