A Rare Case of Right Retrocaval Ureter with Duplication of Infrarenal IVC.

Dudekula A, Prabhu SD - Case Rep Radiol (2014)

Bottom Line: Here, ureter passes between the inferior vena cava (IVC) and psoas muscle and gets compressed.Duplication of IVC is another rare congenital anomaly in the development of IVC.We present a case of a 49-year-old male who presented with loin pain and upon thorough investigation was found to have retrocaval ureter along with duplication of the infrarenal IVC.

ABSTRACT
Retrocaval ureter, also known as circumcaval ureter, is a rare congenital anomaly which commonly presents with loin pain in middle age group. Here, ureter passes between the inferior vena cava (IVC) and psoas muscle and gets compressed. Duplication of IVC is another rare congenital anomaly in the development of IVC. We present a case of a 49-year-old male who presented with loin pain and upon thorough investigation was found to have retrocaval ureter along with duplication of the infrarenal IVC. We bring forward this rare type of combination of two congenital malformations.

fig1: Grey scale ultrasound examination of abdomen shows dilated right renal ureter, renal pelvis, and right hydronephrosis.

Mentions: Ultrasound of abdomen revealed mild hydronephrosis of right kidney with dilated right upper ureter and abrupt narrowing at the level of crossing of right iliac vessels. Lower ureter at the level of urinary bladder was of normal calibre. There was no evidence of any calculus in the right ureter or vesicoureteric junction (Figures 1 and 2).
