Abstract

  

 

Duplicated ureter is relatively common congenital anomaly of urinary system and the knowledge of these congenital anomalies along with variations of renal vasculature is must for interventional radiologist, urologist and laproscopic surgeons for urological procedures and intrarenal or pelvic surgeries. In this reported case, the presence of duplicated ureter on left side was seen  in 50 years old female  with bilateral aberrant  renal arteries, both arising from  ventral aspect of abdominal aorta 2-3 cms above the bifurcation of  aorta. Patients are usually asymptomatic need not to be intervened but if symptoms of urinary tract infections or renal functions impairments appear urgent interventions are must.
