Abstract

The blind-ending bifid ureter is a rare congenital anomaly of urinary system. We presented one case of the blind-ending bifid ureter which originates from the middle third ureter. The embryogenesis and possible mechanisms are reviewed. Changing positions in projections during intravenous urography provides more information of the blind-ending branch. Intravenous urography is one of the best modality to diagnose the blind-ending bifid ureter.
