Endometriosis is a common disorder affecting women of all ages. Although urinary tract involvement is not uncommon, ureteral obstruction is an infrequent complication of endometriosis. A case is reported of acute renal failure caused by bilateral ureteral obstruction resulting from extensive pelvic endometriosis. All reported cases of ureteral endometriosis are reviewed with special emphasis on bilateral ureteral involvement. Physicians need to be aware of this reversible complication of endometriosis.
