Abstract

Ultrasound and computed tomographic images are described in a patient who underwent renal transplantation and presented with hydronephrosis and partial ureteral obstruction secondary to herniation of the transplant ureter into a left inguinal hernia. To our knowledge, this is the first report of herniation of a transplanted ureter in the inguinal canal resulting in or exacerbating ureteral obstruction.
