Incomplete duplex renal system with severe obstruction at the uretero-ureteral junction and minor obstruction at the common stem-vesical junction: Challenging diagnosis and conclusive laparoscopic treatment

PDF

Twin obstructive megaureters associated with duplex renal system is a rare malformation, particularly when a giant ureter dilation is present. We report an original case, initially misinterpreted, of a right incomplete duplex renal system with huge disproportion between the upper pole giant megaureter and the lower pole moderate megaureter, with severe obstruction at the uretero-ureteral junction and minor obstruction at the uretero-vesical junction. Uro-magnetic resonance imaging allowed conclusive diagnosis and the laparoscopic approach was effective for definitive, successful treatment.
