FERRERO DORIA, Roberto et al. Cavernous haemangioma as the cause of ureteral pyelic junction obstruction. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2005, vol.58, n.9, pp.960-963. ISSN 0004-0614.

OBJECTIVES: To report one case of cavernous haemangioma in the upper urinary tract. METHODS/RESULTS: 29-year-old female presenting with right renal colic whose IVP showed UPJ obstruction. Dismembered pyeloplasty was performed and pathology reported a cavernous haemangioma as the cause of stenosis. CONCLUSIONS: Cavernous haemangioma, a rare upper urinary tract pathology, should be considered in the differential diagnosis of causes of UPJ obstruction.
