infant presents w/ bilateral hydronephrosis and ureters dilated from about 3 cm above insertion into the bladder until the renal pelvis.

dx = ureteropelvic junction obstruction.

other choices were stones, metastatic CA, benign tumor, blah blah blah

WTF?

Why the dilation of the ureters extending from 3 cm above their insertion into the bladder? Ureteropelvic junction is in the kidney proper, so obstructions could certainly give hydronephrosis, but to have the dilation/backup being right above the bladder and the answer is ureteropelvic junction = what the f*(&!

please explain.

peace!
