Ureterocele is a congenital saccular dilatation of the terminal portion of the ureter within the urinary bladder. It is an uncommon cause of urinary tract obstruction in the young patient and one of the more challenging anomalies to the urologists. Ureterocele poses a diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma as it manifests a wide spectrum of perplexing clinical symptoms. We report a case of single system ureterocele in a patient presenting with acute severe transformation of recurrent loin pain.
