Urinary extravasation from the calyces and renal pelvis is commonly found in acute ureteral obstruction, most often secondary to calculi. However, it can occur in chronic forms of obstruction provided that the ureter is prevented from distending to accommodate to the potential increase in intralumenal pressure. A case of Hodgkins Disease involving the ureter treated by radiotherapy is presented which illustrates this point.
