PMID:  19669075     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We describe a very rare congenital anomaly of the inferior vena cava in a case who presented with renal calculi and transitional cell carcinoma on the right side. The diagnosis of 'periureteric venous ring' was made on preoperative imaging and confirmed on surgical exploration. We also review the literature and discuss the embryological origin of this anomaly along with its clinical significance.
