Ureteric inguinal herniation with obstructing bladder tumour.Urol Case Rep 2019; 26:100924UC
While ureteric orifice obstruction by bladder tumour is common, an inguinal hernia containing ureter is rare. The simultaneous occurrence of both has not previously been reported and made management both challenging and unique. We present the case of a 75-year-old man who presented with a symptomatic right inguinal hernia, which was found on imaging to include the right ureter. Cystoscopy to perform right ureteric stent insertion revealed bladder tumour obstructing the ipsilateral ureteric orifice. A multi-disciplinary approach involving urology, general surgery and interventional radiology was successful in achieving tumour resection, ureterolysis with preservation of ureter and inguinal hernia repair.
