A ureteroinguinal hernia was demonstrated on both a Tc-99m mercaptoacetyltriglycine (MAG3) renal scan and a computed tomographic scan in an 81-year-old man with suspected urinary tract infection and a prior history of transurethral resection of the prostate. Ureteral hernias are relatively rare, although the ureteroinguinal hernia, found in elderly men on the right side, is the most common type. Ureteral hernias may be asymptomatic but can be present in patients with symptoms of obstructive uropathy.
