Ureterocele is dilatation of lower ureter at its entry into the urinary bladder. It is classified into the single or duplex system and acquired or congenital. Acquired type is rare and seen in adults. We report the case of a 23-year-old male presented with voiding lower urinary tract symptoms and intermittent flank pain. He had a history of frequent spontaneous stone passage with right colicky pain 2 years back. On ultrasonogram and magnetic resonance urogram, diagnosis was made as right renal hydronephrosis with hydroureter due to right side giant intravesical ureterocele. The patient was managed by endoscopic transurethral incision and excision of ureterocele. It is the first case ever reported in the literature, where in giant ureterocele was completely removed by total endoscopic approach.
