Abstract

We report a case of recurrent urinary tract infections owing to culture proved ureteral infection stones. Although ureteral catheterization studies unilaterally localized the infection to the upper urinary tract, the direct immunofluorescence antibody test indicative of upper tract infection was negative. The patient was cured of persistent urinary tract infection by antibiotics, ureterolithotomy, resection of the stenotic ureteral segment and ureteroureterostomy.
