Continuous dribbling of urine is the major symptom in girls with an ectopic vaginal ureter. However, the diagnosis is somewhat difficult in girls with such an entity before toilet-training has been achieved. The current concept in the management of these entities is to remove the renal moieties with the vaginal ectopic ureter drain. We report on a case of an obstructed vaginal ectopic ureter associated with a duplicated collecting system which was managed successfully by renal-sparing surgery.
