[en] Ureteral endometriosis is a rare entity, espe-
cially when it occurs in the postmenopausal period. In certain circumstances, this severe disease can cause obstruction, leading to ureterohydronephrosis and, finally, to a progressive and often silent loss of renal function. The symptomatology is variable and non specific, making pre- operative diagnosis difficult. The treatment is mainly surgical. Its aim is the relief of obstruction to preserve the renal function. We report the case of a 39 year old patient, hysterect- omised for endometriosis nine years earlier, who developed a recurrence demonstrated by ureteral endometriosis and revealed by ureterohydronephrosis. Robot-assisted lapa- roscopic ureterolysis allowed a complete resection of the lesion and resolved the obstruction. No recurrence of ure- terohydronephrosis was found at the fifth and ninth postop- erative month ultrasonographic controls.
