Traumatic fistula involving the renal artery and inferior vena cava is rare and it is usually as a result of penetrating injury. A case of right renal artery to inferior vena cava fistula following gunshot injury to the chest and upper thigh is reported. The hemodynamic change that usually follows these types of fistulae is also illustrated. We also describe the endovascular approach in the treatment of this condition.
