Two patients with subjectively no complaints, and the renal functions were unimpaired, are reported, and a statistical study of the renal ectopia without fusion is performed.

A suspected case of bilateral crossed renal ectopia or bilateral jet effect.

Examination of posterior urography showed a normal upper urinary tract anatomy, whereas the distal ends of the ureters crossed each other in the pelvis, which suggested bilateral crossed renal ectopia.
