Herniation of the urinary bladder is observed in around 1%-4% of cases. Bladder herniation rarely presents with obstructive uropathy; however, bladder herniation carrying ureteroneocystostomy and leading to obstructive uropathy of the graft is even rare. Here, we present a case of a 36-year-old male with deranged renal function test who had undergone renal transplant 10 years back. Computed tomography scan revealed bladder herniation with ureteroneocystostomy and hydronephrosis. He was surgically explored by Gibson incision and ureterolysis, and hernioplasty was performed. Although the cause of herniation was ureteroneocystostomy, it was managed immediately without any need for percutaneous nephrostomy.
