Q: In which conditions hydronephrosis may occur without urinary obstruction?


Conventional wisdom is that hydronephrosis occurs only with urinary obstruction but hydronephrosis may occur without urinary obstruction when patient is prone to a large diuresis, which may distend the intrarenal collecting system, like in congenital nephrogenic diabetes insipidus.
