Abstract

Ureteral triplication is one of the rarest malformations of the upper urinary tract. The association of ureteral triplication and obstruction is even rarer. We report a case of ureteral triplication associated with hydronephrosis due to ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction at the middle pole ureter. To our knowledge, such a malformation has not been described previously.
