Simple ureterocele, where the condition involves only a single ureter, represents only twenty percent of cases. Since the advent of the ultrasound, most ureteroceles are diagnosed prenatally. The pediatric and adult conditions are often found incidentally, i.e. through diagnostic imaging performed for unrelated reasons. Classification ; Intravesical : Confined within the bladder ; Ectopic : Some part extends to the bladder neck or urethra ; Stenotic : Intravesical ureterocele with a narrow opening ; Sphincteric : Ectopic ureterocele with an orifice distal to the bladder neck ; Sphincterostenotic : Orifice is both stenotic and distal to the bladder neck ; Cecoureterocele : Ectopic ure
