Caption

Ureterocele. Coloured urogram (X-ray) of the pelvis of a young child with a ureterocele. This is when the ureter, the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder, is enlarged at the end connected to the bladder (white, lower centre), forming a pouch. In this case, it is the patient's left ureter (tube running up centre right from the bladder) that is abnormal. A ureterocele is a congenital developmental condition that arises while the individual is in their mother's womb. A severe ureterocele causes abnormal urine flow and blockage, so surgery is necessary to correct it and prevent permanent damage to the kidneys.
