Ureteropelvic junction obstruction in an adult: A case report
Chang Sup Lim, Bong Jin Kim, Ja Young Kim, Jin Heo, Won Hyuk Choi, Joung Boom Hong, Dong Heo
Ureteropelvic junction obstruction is the most common congenital anomaly and causes upper urinary tract obstruction in fetuses, neonates, and children, of which 30~50% is diagnosed before birth and rarely diagnosed in adults. In childhood, a ureteropelvic junction obstruction is usually diagnosed by incidental hydronephrosis on ultrasonography, UTIs, fever, abdominal and flank pain, and a palpable abdominal mass. In adults, a ureteropelvic junction obstruction may be asymptomatic for life or may result in flank pain and/or hematuria. We report a case of chronic flank pain, which was finally diagnosed as a ureteropelvic junction obstruction. (Korean J Med 77:S1253-S1257, 2009)
