Urinary tract involvement in endometriosis entails presence of endometriosis deposits within or across the bladder, ureters, urethra, or kidney. Urethral lesions also can merely spot off critical morbidity as still lack of renal characteristic is typical in these sufferers. Signs linked to pelvic endometriosis and/or of urinary involvement perhaps most often nonspecific. The commonest findings consist of menstrual symptoms, flank agonize, monstrous hematuria, and pelvic mass.

Ureteric obstruction ensuing in hydronephrosis is a uncommon manifestation of ureteric endometriosis. It occurs as a consequence of intrinsic involvement at some point soon of the ureteric, or from extrinsic compression of the ureteric by a pelvic endometrioma. In conditions of intrinsic involvement, ectopic endometrial tissue is point to at some point soon of the muscular is propria, lamina propriety or ureteric lumen. In extrinsic conditions endometriosis occurs at some point soon of the ureteric adventitia and adjacent soft tissues most sensible. Extrinsic involvement is approximately 4 times more typical than intrinsic disease.

Deeply infiltrating Endometriosis (DIE) most assuredly invades the rectovaginal role, uterosacral ligaments, bowel or urinary tract. Our case change into a DIE thanks to the bilateral ureteric involvement.

Evaluation of ureteric endometriosis is elusive and depends carefully on scientific suspicion. In our case, patient complained of hesitancy of maturation in total at some point soon of menses which is a quite weird and wonderful presentation of ureteric endometriosis. This symptom will be explained by enlargement of active endometriosis tissue across the ureters. Since ureteric endometriosis occurs assuredly with pelvic endometriosis there is a necessity for multidisciplinary management. Progressive ureteric obstruction also can merely additionally be insidious and bilateral compromise of ureters also can merely in the waste lead to renal failure. 30% of sufferers would possibly well fetch diminished kidney characteristic at the time of research that will prove in still kidney loss.

Medical and surgical operation is accessible for ureteric endometriosis. Factors influencing treatment selection consist of sufferers’ age, curiosity in conserving fertility, severity of symptoms and presence or absence of ureteric obstruction and its penalties. Medical treatment will be supplied to these making an are trying to protect reproductive capacity or these with typical renal characteristic and no predominant obstruction. In our case surgical management change into determined so as that the younger lady is relieved of the obstruction and prevents future renal misery. Extra conservative ureterolysis change into performed minimizing morbidity linked to surgical operation. To in the reduction of the possibility of ureteric fibrosis a double J stent change into placed for six weeks. A take a look at IVP after removal of ureteric stents showed resolution of the obstruction. At 6 months follow up, the patient is relieved of her symptoms and USG KUB shows typical pelvic clypeal system. She has been told and counseled to follow up assuredly keeping a vigilant notion on recurrence.
