Abstract: Retrocaval ureter (RU) is an abnormal embryonic development of the caudal vena cava (CVC) that leads the ureter to be entrapped dorsal to the CVC. In most cases there is no clinical impact; however, it can cause hydronephrosis. We report a rare case of type II symptomatic retrocaval ureter in a feline treated with nephroureterectomy. A 4-year-old, intact male, mixed breed cat was submitted to abdominal ultrasound and severe right hydronephrosis was diagnosed, with no signs of obstruction. We performed an explo… Show more

Approximately 20 per cent of clinical retrocaval ureters in human beings have been shown to be associated with other congenital abnormalities such as hypospadias, supernumerary lumbar vertebrae or cryptorchidism 15 16.…”
