  • We present a case of an adult male who was admitted with acute renal failure. In evaluating the potential causes of renal failure, workup discovered bilateral ureteroceles. Surgical treatments of the ureteroceles lead to reversal of his acute renal failure. This is the first time that treatment of ureteroceles has been reported to correct acute renal failure in the English literature.
