Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 45-year old man who was hospitalized due to his 8-month history of progressive abdominal distension and intermittent attacks of nausea. Physical examination showed a palpable mass in the right flank region of the abdomen. Computed tomography revealed the presence of a rare condition termed giant hydronephrosis. The study suggests the need of an early recognition using sophisticated imaging studies to avoid catastrophic morbidity.
