Abstract

Ureterocole is a congenital anomaly of the distal ureter found mostly in females . Rarely these may prolapse in the urethera and appear as a midline mass. A 19 year old female presented with difficulty in voiding with an intralabial mass . The mass was reduced into the bladder followed by excretory urography which showed a distal ureteric lesion .Cystosocpy was done which showed a ureterocoele on the left side. A transuretheral incision of ureterocoele was done . Prolapsed ureterocoele should be kept as a differential diagnosis in young females .However it should be differentiated from caecoureterocoele .Transuretheral incision is the optimal treatment modality for these patients .
