Staghorn calculi (also sometimes called coral calculi) obtain their characteristic shape by forming a cast of the renal pelvis and calices, thus resembling the horns of a stag. The vast majority of staghorn calculi are radiopaque and appear as branching calcific densities overlying the renal outline and may mimic an excretory phase IVP. Lamination within the stone is common. Read more: radiopaedia.org/...

Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP), sometimes referred to as Stone Man Syndrome, is an extremely rare disease of the connective tissue. A mutation of the body's repair mechanism causes fibrous tissue (including muscle, tendon, and ligament) to be ossified when damaged. In many cases, injuries can cause joints to become permanently frozen in place. Surgical removal of the extra bone growths has been shown to cause the body to "repair" the affected area with more bone.

Despite this patient having a resonably good renal cortex on ultrasound, this dynamic study, in the form of a traditional IVU, shows a non-functioning left kidney. Traditional IVU, although less commonly used in most instances, still has some advantages over CT-IVU, such as observing the kidney over an extending time period, with the flexibility to decide during the study when to next image and when to stop further imaging.
