Bottom Line: Multicystic dysplastic kidney (MCDK) is a congenital anomaly as the result of abnormal interaction between the ureteric bud and metanephric mesenchyme.The patient reported herein is a 23-years-old woman with involuted MCDK and ipsilateral blind megaureter causing chronic urinary infection and chronic abdominal pain.Preoperative and intraoperative examination failed to detect the communication between megaureter and the urinary bladder.

ABSTRACT
Multicystic dysplastic kidney (MCDK) is a congenital anomaly as the result of abnormal interaction between the ureteric bud and metanephric mesenchyme. Unilateral MCDK can be associated with other anomalies of the genitourinary tract. Relatively rare associated anomaly is the presence of ipsilateral refluxing blind megaureter. The patient reported herein is a 23-years-old woman with involuted MCDK and ipsilateral blind megaureter causing chronic urinary infection and chronic abdominal pain. Preoperative and intraoperative examination failed to detect the communication between megaureter and the urinary bladder.

Figure 0001: CT showing pseudocystic formation on the left and beneath the urinary bladder.

Mentions: At the age of 23, she visited gynecologist, due to chronic pelvic pain and inability to stay pregnant. The gynecological examination revealed bizarre cystic mass in the pelvis, caudal and left to the urinary bladder. A computerized tomography (CT) scan revealed the presence of the 15-cm-long pseudo-cystic mass in the pelvis. The left kidney was absent while the right kidney was hypertrophic (Figure 1).
