AA. report a case history about a 3 month old female baby affected by bilateral pyelo-ureteric obstruction by fungus ball, presented as urine ascites because of fissure in renal pelvis and successfully treated by surgery. In spite of disobstruction and subsequent medical treatment, the obstruction relapsed and a second operation was necessary. This time a bilateral nephrostomy was done allowing irrigation with anti-candida drugs. This case has to be considered unusual because of the age of the patient, the clinical presentation as ascites, the bilateral affection, the tendency to relapse after disobstruction, and the successful treatment after the second operation.
