Unilateral incomplete duplication of ureter of right kidney was observed during routine dissection of an adult male
cadaver at R.N.T. Medical College, Udaipur. Two ureters of right kidney joined just before entrance into urinary
bladder and opened in urinary bladder by a single ureteric orifice. Duplication is one of the commonest anomaly of
genitourinary system and may be accompanied by other congenital anomaly or it may be a cause of urinary tract
infections, calculi or it may get injured during pelvic surgeries. In this case study we have discussed embryological
development and clinical implications of such type of anomaly.
Key words: Duplication, ureter, bifid
