ABSTRACT

Female urethral catheterization (UC) is a common procedure. Nurses need to be aware of the complications associated with catheterization to practice it safely and minimize the risks to the patient. The most common complications are trauma and infection. We report the case of a 62-year-old woman with an unusual complication of UC-mimicking perforation. The catheter was blindly inserted into the renal pelvis.
