Abstract

Bilateral ureteral triplication is a very rare form of congenital urinary tract anomaly;  so far, less than 10 cases have been reported worldwide. We report an infant  with bilateral complete duplex kidneys and a rare variant of Type II bilateral  ureteral triplication. The diagnostic challenges and successful laparoscopic  management are discussed.
