Abstract

Primary localized amyloidosis of the ureter can closely resemble those of malignancy or inflammation involving the ureters in its presentation and ureteroscopic appearance and on diagnostic imaging studies. We provide a case of ureteral amyloidosis to reveal its imaging characteristic and to distinguish localized amyloidosis from malignancy and ureteritis.
