Congenital ureteral strictures most commonly occur at the proximal and distal segments of the ureter. Congenital midureteral stricture is a rare entity that is usually detected by prenatal ultrasonography and repaired in infants. We present the case and video of a congenital midureteral stricture in a 20-year-old woman who presented with a severe episode of pyelonephritis. The congenital midureteral stricture was successfully managed with robot-assisted laparoscopic excision and ureteroureterostomy.
