Malakoplakia of the ureter is a rare pathological entity. We discuss a 15-year-old girl with malakoplakia of the ureter. She presented with obstructive uropathy associated with left flank pain. Radiological investigations showed left lower ureteric stricture without bladder or kidney involvement. She was treated by excision of terminal ureter and ureteroneocystostomy. Histopathologic examination of the excised specimen showed malakoplakia. Postoperative course was uneventful and on follow-up, she has normal serum creatinine and no recurrence of the disease.
