Ureterocele

Specialty of Paediatric urology

A ureterocele is a birth defect often associated with a duplex kidney, where a sac-like pouch forms where the ureter opens into the bladder. The condition is usually found during the prenatal ultrasound scan in most cases, but can cause multiple symptoms if not diagnosed early, such as urinary retention, pyelonephritis, and haematuria among others. Treatment is usually via endoscopic surgery to make an incision in the ureterocele.
