Özet

Circumcaval ureter is a congenital abnormality in which the right ureter passes behind the inferior vena cava (IVC), but it is seldom reported in childhood. Surgery is required for symptomatic cases to transect and reposition the right ureter to lie anterior to the IVC in order to correct this abnormality. We present three childhood cases where two types of obstructive circumcaval ureter were diagnosed and treated surgically.
