Barium granuloma: An unusual cause of unilateral ureteral obstruction

J. M. Walther, N. A. Romas, F. C. Lowe

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A small amount of barium extravasated at the time of colonic surgery led to the development of a barium granuloma that caused unilateral ureteral obstruction. Although the barium was not detected on radiography or urography preoperatively, it was clearly visible at the time of ureteral exploration and ureterolysis.
