Urologists are much familiar with operating renal stones in normally located well ascended retroperitoneal kidneys. However operating on a renal stone in an anomalous pelvic dystopic kidney is a challenge. A multitude of treatment options are available for renal lithiasis like open surgery, ESWL, PCNL, Laparoscopy, RIRS. Conventional PCNL cannot be easily done in ectopic pelvic kindney because of overlying bone and risk of injuring bowel and anomalous blood supply of low lying kidney. An ectopic pelvic kidney can be safely dealt with various Laparoscopic techniques without any major complications. The first report of laparoscopic pyelolithotomy for calculus removal in a pelvic kidney was reported by William et.al in 1996 in J.Urol. So far only few cases of Laparoscopic stone surgery for ectopic pelvic kideny have been reported
