The presence of an ectopic ureter may be indicated by continuous wetting, despite a normal voiding pattern, especially in girls. In most cases, an ectopic ureter is associated with a duplex collecting system and complete ureteral duplication. A 5-year-old girl presented with urinary incontinence regardless of the successful toilet training and a suspicion of left duplex kidney on a previous ultrasound. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography revealed a double left kidney with double ureters, both…
