Ureteritis cystica associated with ureteral polyp is a rare urology condition and may be related to ureteral obstruction, therefore needs to be treated accordingly. It may be accompanied by other ureteral pathologies and definitive diagnosis requires biopsy or resection of the lesions. Few similar cases have been described in the literature. We report a case of a patient with simultaneous ureteritis cystica and a benign ureteral polyp that had a satisfactory surgical approach.
