Abstract

Because most of the presenting symptoms of ureteral herniation and crossed renal ectopia are nonspecific, it is important to be aware of their presence and association to avoid iatrogenic injuries to the kidneys and/or the ureters. We present the imaging findings of a patient with ureteral ligation whose ureteral herniation and crossed renal ectopia were identified after undergoing hernia repair.
