Predicting the clinical outcome of antenatally detected unilateral periureteric
We report a case of renal tuberculosis in progressive stage through CT IVU evaluation in a patient presenting with recurrent dysuria, haematuria and fever, which was initially managed as bacterial cystitis; and hereby conclude that whenever a pattern of chronic renal inflammatory disease is recognized, particularly in the setting of periureteric
or peripelvic fibrosis, tuberculosis must be considered clinically.
Contrast-enhanced computed tomography revealed a thickening of the right lower ureteric stump with no periureteric
stranding, and an enhancing lesion in the bladder (Fig.
MRI Lower Abdomen was done to see the extent of the vaginal carcinoma, which showed infiltration in surrounding periureteric
However, in our patient, the MRI clearly depicted that there was a good chance of periureteric
infiltration by the tumour, which was subsequently confirmed on final histopathology.
