Photo Title: Ureterocele
Photo Info

A ureterocele is a cystic out-pouching of the distal ureter into the urinary bladder. In this fetus the ureterocele is part of a wider urinary tract anomaly involving double renal pelvis and hydronephrotic changes in the corresponding pelvicalyceal system drained by the affected ureter. Because of the obstructive nature of ureteroceles, the activity of the affected renal unit varies from a normal, well-functioning kidney to a nonfunctioning, dysplastic renal segment or kidney.
