A prospective study of 13 children, who had undergone PCNL (Percutanious nephrolithotomy) with adult sized instruments in our rural hospital over a period of three years. There were 10 boys and 03 girls, with a mean age of 7 years (range, 24 months to 15 years). Mean stone burden was 2.0 cm2. The tract was dilated up to 20fr. Stone clearance rate was 76.92%. Three (23.07%) patients required blood transfusion, two (15.38%) Children had fever and two (15.38%) had prolonged leak from nephrostomy site. Pediatric PCNL using adult sized instruments is relatively safe in children.
