We report two cases of ureteral obstruction caused by an indwelling urethral catheter. 80-year-old man and 67-year-old woman with indwelled urethral catheter because of neurogenic bladder, visited at our hospital because of high fever. Abdominal CT examinations showed left hydronephrosis and the tip of the urethral catheter entering into left ureteral orifice. We changed urethral catheter to another type, short tip type, nephrostomy catheter and performed antibiotic therapy. Their condition improved immediately.
