Hutch diverticulum is a rare entity thought to be a congenital failure of normal muscle development around the ureteral orifice where Waldeyers heath anatomically covers the space between the intravesical ureter and muscular layer of bladder.
Patients with Hutch diverticulum can be asymptomatic or may have diverse symptoms due to obstruction or voiding dysfunction, urinary retention inside the diverticulum (urinary infections) or stone formation (as in the case we present here).
Deflux should not be used in patients with non-functional kidney(s), hutch diverticulum, ureterocele, active voiding dysfunction, and ongoing urinary tract infection (UTI).
