A ureterocele is a cystic outpouching of the distal ureter into the urinary bladder. It is one of the urologic anomalies with a spectrum of symptoms, diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma challenging care providers. Most pediatric ureterocele are found during routine pre-natal screening and incidentally in adults during imaging studies. We report a case of bilateral ureterocele in a 40 years old man presented with bilateral flank pain. Its presentations, diagnostic challenges and management were discussed.

Keywords: Ureterocele, cystic outpouching, symptoms, diagnostic challenges.
