Abstract

Ureteric entrapment within the sacroiliac joint (SIJ) is very rare. However, we experienced a case of a 77-year-old woman who presented with right hydronephrosis during a routine health check. Computed tomography and retrograde pyelography showed entrapment of the right ureter at the level of the SIJ, with a right proximal hydroureter, which was confirmed during surgery. Herein, we described this case and present a review of the literature on similar cases.
