The growth of excess fibrous tissue in the space behind the stomach and intestine is known as retroperitoneal fibrosis or Ormond's disease. This fibrous growth can block or compress the ureters preventing urine from flowing freely from the kidneys to the bladder. This disorder begins as an inflammation of the abdominal aorta which affects the flow of flood from the heart to the legs and kidneys. Pain in the abdomen and leg and swelling or discolouration of the legs are the signs and symptoms of this disorder.
HOW IS RETROPERITONEAL FIBROSIS DIAGNOSED?
CT and MRI scans of the abdomen would help in diagnosing this disorder. Ultrasound of the kidneys and blood test to determine kidney function would help in confirming the diagnosis of this disorder.
HOW IS RETROPERITONEAL FIBROSIS TREATED?
Corticosteroids are given to patients as the first step. If this does not work general surgeons may consider removal of the fibrous mass and conducting biopsy. In some cases stents are placed for treating the condition.

The disorder may lead to:
• Ongoing blockage of the tubes leading from the kidney on one or both sides
