MARTINEZ-SALAMANCA GARCIA, J.I. et al. Nutcracker`s syndrome: demostration with helicoidal TC with volumetric reconstruction "3D". Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2004, vol.28, n.7, pp.549-552. ISSN 0210-4806.

The nutcracker's syndrome or phenomenom is defined as the left renal vein compression between the aorta and the superior mesenteric artery. Diagnosis is uncommon, not only due to its low frequency but for the dificulty to be suspected in usual findings as lumbar pain or hematuria. We present the case of a patient to whom we were able to show mentioned pathology with the helicoidal TC with volumetric reconstruction "3D" (VR).

Keywords : Nutcracker syndrome; Nutcracker phenomenon; Hematuria.
