Abstract: Introduction: Renal or ureteric colic is an acute and severe pain caused by obstruction in the ureter. It usually occurs in the narrower areas of the ureter. It can be associated with severe pain, nausea, vomiting, urinary infections, haematuria, hydronephrosis, etc. Case Summary: A case of 15 mm calculus, lodged at the right ureterovesicular junction, presented with severe cutting pain extending downwards from the right lumbar region to the right groin area. The patient had severe pain at the conclusion of urination. Another calculus of size 10 mm in the lower calyx of the left kidney and 3.4 mm concretion in the right kidney was also detected. The homoeopathic medicine Sarsaparilla was given on the basis of totality of symptoms for 3 days. The pain reduced in 3 days and subsequent to an acute colicky pain and some bleeding, on the 11th day, the stone was expelled. This case report shows the potential of Homoeopathy in cases of large urinary calculi.
