A case of unique communication between blind-ending ectopic ureter and ipsilateral hemi-hematocolpometra in uterus didelphys

, : A case of unique communication between blind-ending ectopic ureter and ipsilateral hemi-hematocolpometra in uterus didelphys. Journal Of Urology. 153(4): 1208-1210

Uterus didelphys with double vagina and hemi-vaginal atresia is a rare syndrome of congenital anomalies. A 17-year-old girl had a right blind-ending ectopic ureter, the proximal end of which communicated with the ipsilateral uterine cervix of uterus didelphys. The patient presented with vaginal urinary incontinence after incision of the vaginal wall for light hemi-hematocolpometra. Following various examinations, the ipsilateral kidney was found to be absent. The ectopic ureter and communicating duct were resected, and the fistula was closed. The genesis of malformation of the female genitalia and urinary tract resulting in such a unique communication is discussed. The importance of preoperative meticulous examinations, including cysto-genitography, pelvic magnetic resonance imaging and panendoscopy with the patient under anesthesia, is emphasized.
