We report the case of a patient with pain and an abdominal palpable mass whose tests showed a right pelvic kidney with a 4-cm stone in the renal pelvis. We describe the successful management through laparoscopic assisted percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) in ectopic pelvic kidney, stressing that this method is a minimally invasive therapeutic option in such cases.
