Abstract: Ureterocele is dilatation of lower ureter at its entry into urinary bladder. It is classified as single or duplex system and acquired or congenital. Acquired type is commonly seen in adults. Duplicated ureters are often associated with an obstructed upper pole moiety and a refluxing lower pole moiety. In our case report adult type simple ureterocele is presented in lower moiety of duplex system with impacted calculus. Because of rarity of the presentation and diagnosis of the condition, urologist need to be aware of etiology and appearance. Treatment options depend on the extension of the ureterocele, obstruction to draining system. Since few cases have been reported in literature, clinicians need to have understanding and orientation towards diagnosis, investigations and treatment of this condition.
