Rights and Permissions

Patients with ureteral obstruction often present a diagnostic dilemma on imaging techniques. Ureteritis cystica (UC) is one benign condition which can occasionally be a cause of ureteric obstruction and almost always eludes diagnosis unless ureteroscopic examination is performed. Although no definitive operative technique has been defined for its cure in the literature, ureteroscopic laser ablation is an effective minimally invasive option. We hereby present a short case report of thulium laser ablation in an elderly female with UC in the left upper ureter.
