Patient Data

Age: 50 years
Gender: Female

Transabdominal scan with distended urinary bladder shows left-sided mild hydronephrosis. However, a calculus could not be seen at the left vesicoureteric junction.

Transvaginal scan shows left vesicoureteric junction calculus measuring about 4 mm.

Case Discussion

A female patient presented with left-sided renal colic. There is a left vesicoureteric junction calculus detected by the transvaginal scan; which is the most common site of ureteric calculus. 

This case shows the importance of one of the non-gynecologic applications of transvaginal ultrasound.
