We describe, for the first time, a rupture of the ureter caused by changing a suprapubic vesical catheter. The guide wire passed into the ostium of the left ureter during the procedure, and the catheter was pushed over the wire into the left ureter blocking it. The lesion was diagnosed by intravenous pyelography. A pigtail stent was placed in the left ureter.
