Surgical complications remain a significant clinical problem following renal trans­plantation. Ureteral obstruction following transplantation is not uncommon. Persistent obstruc­tion of the ureterovesical anastomosis is the most common urologic complication. Obstruction occurring beyond the first post operative month remains frequent (2-7.5%) and mostly related to ureteral stenosis. We report here a case of Ureteral stenosis due to an unusual cause and review the literature.
