Abstract

A case of idiopathic retroperitoneal fibrosis causing obstruction to the third part of the duodenum and bilateral obstructive uropathy was reported. This case illustrated the uncommon complication of RPF, i.e. causing duodenal obstruction, and discussed the typical imaging features of RPF on ultrasound, retrograde urography and CT Abdomen as seen in this patient. The ultrasound and CT abdomen showed retroperitoneal soft tissue plaque enveloping the aorta and inferior vena cava. Retrograde pyelography revealed bilateral hydroureteronephrosis and medial deviation of the ureters at mid-ureters and gradual tapering distally. The use of MRI abdomen in differentiating benign from malignant RPF is also highlighted.
