A rare case of recurrent urinary obstruction and acute renal failure from cystitis cystica et glandularis

We report a recurrent case of cystitis cystica et glandularis,
common type. Normally benign and asymptomatic, CCEG
was found to be obstructing the left ureteric orifice, leading
to progressive hydronephrosis of the left kidney with ensuing acute azotemia. Despite adequate resection, the lesion recurred within 3 months and required repeat TURBT. The
etiology of CCEG in this case is still unclear, although it is
commonly related to chronic irritation. While commonly
thought of as a consequence to obstruction, CCEG caused
acute azotemia in addition to urinary obstruction in our
case. We believe this is the first reported case with such specifications.
