TORRES GOMEZ, Francisco Javier; VAZQUEZ RAMIREZ, Francisco José  and  TORRES OLIVERA, Francisco Javier. Ureteral endometriosis: Case report. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.2, pp.192-195. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objectives: Ureteral endometriosis is a rare entity which may produce urinary tract obstruction with subsequent loss of renal function if treatment is not undertaken early due to its asymptomatic but locally aggressive course. Methods/Results: We report one case of intrinsic ureteral endometriosis with unilateral renal failure (renal atrophy) and unresectable periureteral fibroinflammatory thickening involving vascular or visceral structures. Conclusions: We emphasize the diagnostic and therapeutic importance of a high degree of clinical suspicion about this entity, mainly in patients with history of genital endometriosis.

Keywords : Endometriosis; Ureter; Intrinsic.
