The development of a cystic pelvic mass after hysterectomy with preservation of ovaries can be the cause of chronic pelvic pain. This entity is called “the residual ovary syndrome”. To our knowledge there are no cases reported in the literature with associated ureteral obstruction. A case in which the formation of the pelvic mass contributed at least to the formation of the ureteral stenosis is presented. The pelvic pain and stenosis resolved after treatment with GnRH-analogues and with temporary ureteral stent.
