Even though endometriosis is a common condition among women, ureteral endometriosis is a rare entity. Often with a silent presentation, ureteral endometriosis may lead to a systemic condition, which if left untreated may ultimately lead to irreversible kidney failure. We present a case of a 42-year-old patient who presented with hypertension due to acute renal failure caused by ureteral endometriosis. The patient underwent surgical treatment by a multidisciplinary team of gynecologists and urologists to restore normal kidney function.
