Abstract

Megaureter is a nonspecific term implying a spectrum of anomalies associated with grossly dilated diameter of ureter. Ectopic ureter is one such anomaly. Ectopic ureter is defined as any ureter, single or duplex, that does not enter the trigonal area of the bladder. Megaureter is defined as any ureter with a diameter of 7-8 mm2. Megaureter is a common cause of obstructive uropathy among neonates and young children. It is four times more common in boys than in girls and is bilateral in <25 style="font-family:">We present a case of an ectopic ureter leading to secondary obstructing non-refluxing megaureter in a 12 year old female child.

Keywords: Ectopic ureter, Megaureter, Ureteric reimplantation, Ureteral tapering.
