In comparison with megaureters in children, their reports in adult are not common. We had an opportunity to treat seven adults with megaureters during the last six years. They were all female and ages ranged from 46 to 67 years. Five patients with grade II and one with grade III (Pfister-Hendren's classification) were treated by reconstructive surgery, excision of the narrow segment, tapering of the dilated lower ureter and reimplantation through a submucosal tunnel. The outcome of all the grade II patients was excellent and the case with grade III showed mild improvement. The results suggested that surgical reconstruction could be equally effective for megaureters in adults compared to those in children.
