Patient
female, 72 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Axial Non contrast CT at the level of the right renal pelvis

    Axial non contrast CT demonstrates a hyperdense thickening of the renal pelvis (arrow) the contralateral kidney appears normal.

     
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Axial Non Contrast CT

    Axial non contrast CT demonstrates that the hyperdense thickening of the renal pelvis seen at Fig. 1 extends along the the right ureter; the left ureter is normal (arrowheads).

     
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Contrast enhanced CT, excretory phase.

    Contrast enhanced CT at the excretory phase, clearly demonstrates the asymmetry of the ureteral wall thickening with marked thickened right ureter (arrow). The left ureter is normal.

     
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Follow up CT Urography.

    CT Urography performed 1 month after the episode of gross haematuria demonstrates complete resolution of the suburothelial haematoma at the right renal pelvis.

     
     
     
  • Figure 5
    Follow up CT Urography

    CT Urography performed 1 month after the episode of gross haematuria demonstrates complete resolution of the suburothelial haematoma at the right ureter.
