Congenital midureteral stricture is an uncommon cause of prenatal hydronephrosis, and it is generally associated with proximal hydroureteronephrosis . We report a unique case of a congenital severe midureteral dilatation associated with mild proximal ureteral dilatation and normal distal ureteral diameter. The dilated midureter was excised, and an open end-to-end ureteroureterostomy was performed. Follow-up 6 months after surgical correction revealed marked improvement in the left-sided hydronephrosis and complete resolution of the hydroureter.
