Ectopic Ureterocoele with a Single System Hypoplastic Non-Functioning Kidney: Report of a Rare Case

Prakasa RB, Rambabu B, Sridhar P

Ureterocoele, a balloon like dilatation of distal ureter, is commonly seen in duplex system kidneys. Only 20 % of cases are simple ureterocoeles seen in single system kidneys which usually have good renal function and are usually seen in children. Here we present a case of ureterocoele in an adult who presented with lower urinary tract symptoms and intraoperatively was found to be an ectopic ureterocoele with a single system kidney which was hypoplastic and non-functioning.
