Abstract

Bilateral intravesical ureteroceles is a rare condition where both ureters terminally end in cystic dilations in the urinary bladder. Herein, a 31-year-old male patient presented with severe right flank pain and gross hematuria. Upon computed tomography imaging, a right ureterocele with an entrapped stone was revealed. Direct visualization also showed a smaller ureterocele at the left ureterovesical junction. Both ureteroceles were unroofed using rigid resectoscope with cold knife resulting in rapid bilateral efflux. The treatment was well tolerated with no known complications. Albeit uncommon, this case highlights the need to consider ureteroceles in adult patients with urinary tract symptoms. © 2021 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Inc.
