Abstract: Whilst prostatic enlargement remains the commonest cause of bilateral hydronephrosis in males greater than 50 years of age, other rarer conditions such as retroperitoneal fibrosis should be borne in mind. We report a case of bilateral hydronephrosis which was eventually diagnosed as idiopathic retroperitoneal fibrosis and treated with open surgical ureterolysis with omental wrapping.
