Abstract

Mural filling defects were identified in the renal pelves or ureters in five patients with nephrostomy tubes. In two patients, infection was documented. In the remaining patients, the urine was sterile. While typical ureteritis cystica associated with infection may be seen in patients with nephrostomy tubes, in some patients, other mechanisms are responsible for this appearance.
