Extracorporeal shock wave (ESLW) is a common and relatively safe procedure, with a high success rate and low side effects. Its complications are limited to the kidneys and always disappear spontaneously. Acute pain is the only manifestation of kidney hematoma and should be explored. Conservative treatment is generally the treatment of choice. We reported the case of a 60-year-old man who underwent extracorporeal lithotripsy, 4 h after the procedure, he was presented to the emergency with severe abdominal pain, and a CT scan showed a hematoma of the left kidney. Conservative treatment was performed, and the patient was discharged at home in 48h.
