Abstract Share this page

It is generally recognized that in many patients the ureteric obstruction and other manifestations of non-malignant retroperitoneal fibrosis will respond to treatment with corticosteroids. However, most surgeons are reluctant to use steroids as the primary treatment for patients with this condition, mainly because of the risk of mismanagement of malignant retroperitoneal fibrosis. Our experience in the care of 17 patients with non-malignant retroperitoneal fibrosis has led us to believe that an initial non-surgical approach is both safe and preferable.
