Ceftriaxone is known to cause biliary pseudolithiasis and, rarely, nephrolithiasis mainly in children. However, we reported the development of bilateral distal ureteral ceftriaxone-associated lithiasis in 7 adults, which suggests that the risk of ureterolithiasis impaction should be considered when treating patients with ceftriaxone, even in adults. To avoid strengthening greater renal damage, ureteroscopic insertion of double J stents may be an alternative management for patients with ureteral ceftriaxone-associated lithiasis.
