Ureterocele, while not an uncommon pediatric urologic problem, has been reported only rarely in adults. Adult bilateral ureteroceles with calculi is an uncommon and well tolerated, relatively rare clinical entity. Although ureteroceles in adults are usually asymptomatic, various symptoms tend to appear in ureteroceles with stones, such as flank pain, urinary tract infections and bladder irritability. While ureteroceles occur more commonly in women, stones in ureteroceles tend to be more common in men. Most ureteroceles can be safely managed transurethrally endoscopically which is generally well tolerated by most patients. We present an unusual clinical presentation of bilateral adult non-obstructing ureteroceles containing urinary stones.
