Pyeloureteritis cystica is a rare situation of the renal pelvis and ureters, characterized by cystical formations of the epithelium. The etiology is unknown and there is no specific treatment. It is usually diagnosed accidently during imaging of the upper urinary tract for different reasons. We present a case of pyeloureteritis cystica.
