hydronephrosis = dilation of kidney (usu. due to obstruction at uretopelvic junction or backflow from obstructed bladder)
Hmm I don't think so. The answer is "ureter" (singular) which would not result in bilateral hydronephrosis.
If it is out of FA 2019, could someone give the page number to reference? Hydronephrosis' full definition is given on page 587 and makes no mention of invasive cervical carcinoma.
p631 → Pap smear can detect cervical dysplasia before it progresses to invasive carcinoma. Diagnose via colposcopy and biopsy. Lateral invasion can block ureters - hydronephrosis - renal failure.
It's also in Pathoma page 140 in the 2018 edition!
