Ureteral rupture is an uncommon lesion in adults following blunt trauma. We report a case of an adult who sustained a ureteral injury in a fall from a height. To our knowledge this is the first time this has been reported following this mechanism of injury. The diagnosis was made from a CT scan. Prompt surgical repair yielded an excellent result.
