|Abstract:||A 39 year old lady presented with flank pain and haematuria. Radiological investigations showed unilateral hydronephrosis and a serum creatinine of 102?mol/l. At cystoscopy, a soft tissue mass was found in the region of the left ureteric orifice and was causing obstruction of the ureter. A resection biopsy of this lesion was taken. A CT scan and DTPA renogram showed a non-functioning left kidney secondary to chronic obstruction by a soft tissue mass at the left vesico-ureteric junction. Histological analysis of the endoscopic resection specimen showed that the mass contained tubal-type epithelium compatible with a diagnosis of endosalpingiosis (a rare variant of Mullerianosis of the urinary tract). In view of persistent symptoms, it was decided to proceed to surgery. A hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and partial cystectomy were performed. The patient has recovered well and is currently asymptomatic. Formal histology of the resection specimen showed the presence of endometriosis.|
