What sort of treatment will my child receive?
Specific treatment recommendations for a ureterocele or ureteral duplication will depend on your child's individual situation.
If your child is ill from a urinary tract infection, intravenous fluids and antibiotics may be administered. Once the urinary tract infection is resolved, the ureterocele will be addressed.
If the area of the ureter has a great deal of urine accumulation, it may need to be surgically drained.
If your child's kidney has been damaged, part of it may need to be removed. For more information on that procedure, see our page on nephrectomy.
