Endometriosis affecting the urinary tract is very rare disease. The ureteral endometriosis is mostly asymptomatic for a long time, and associated with nonspecific symptoms such as abdominal or flank pain, renal colic, voiding difficulty and gross hematuria. Radiologic and laboratory findings show nonspecific findings, and the diagnosis is difficult. We report a case of obstructive ureteral endometriosis associated with right hydronephorsis. This case is operated under the impression of direct compression of ureter by uterine myoma. Total abdominal hysterectomy and ureteroureterostomy were performed. Final diagnosis of ureteral endometriosis is documented by pathologic findings.
Key Words: Ureteral endometriosis, Hydronephrosis
