The article reports a case of a 68-year-old female patient with a giant ureteral stone of 12 cm in length, localized at the upper and middle third of the right ureter. The patient had undergone right ureterolithotomy with DJ-stent placement. Her postoperative period was uneventful. The distinctive feature of this case was that the patient had neither obstruction of urine flow through the urinary tract, nor metabolic disorders that could cause the formation of the giant ureteral stone.
