Herein we report on a patient with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) who entered a long-term remission following shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) for a left proximal ureteral stone. In addition, we include data on the effect of SWL on in vitro and in vivo human lymphocyte subpopulations, and discuss the possible mechanisms of this observation.
