A rare case of bilateral pararenal abscess secondary to staghorn calculi is reported. It is characterized by a singular evolution in both side, with fistulization along ileopsoas muscle until the Scarpa triangle. Considering the seriousness of this illness, the importance of an early surgical therapy of complicated staghorn lithiasis is underlined.
