Ureteritis cystica (UC) is a benign condition that commonly affects the ureter and can mimic other conditions such as transitional cell carcinoma, blood clots, air bubbles, radiolucent stones, fibroepithelial polyps, and sloughed renal papillae. Radiographically, UC is characterized by multiple small, round, lucent defects, which cause scalloping of the ureteral margins when seen in profile. The scalloping is produced by the projection of the submucosal cysts into the lumen and represents an important differential feature of this disease. We present a case of UC with a radiological pathological correlation.
