Abstract: Urolithiasis refers to stones originating anywhere in the urinary system. Renal stones are of different types, the most common being the calcium oxalate stones. Various dietary, non-dietary, and urinary risk factors contribute to their formation. Non-contrast computed tomography is the preferred investigation for identification. This is a case report of 6 mm Renal calculi impacted at vesicoureteric junction causing hydroureteronephrosis. The patient had renal stone for six years and had undergone conventional treatment, but the response was unsatisfactory. After repertorisation, Homoeopathic medicine Lycopodium was prescribed in 200c potency and repeated at regular intervals. The impacted 6mm renal calculi and Hydroureteronephrosis resolved within 48 days of treatment. The Urolithiasis symptom Score improved from 9 to 1 during treatment, and the MONARCH score of +9/11 shows a positive causal relationship between Lycopodium and the treatment outcome. The case report indicates the effectiveness of individualized Homoeopathic medicine in the management of impacted Urolithiasis.
