VILLANUEVA PENA, A.  and  DIEGO RODRIGUEZ, E. de. Ureteral triplication, an unusual isolated presentation. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2004, vol.28, n.10, pp.766-770. ISSN 0210-4806.

We report the case of a 26 years old female who presented, as a casual finding, a right complete ureteral triplicity ( probably Campbell’s tipe I) with no other associated abnormalities.  Despite ureteral duplication is a frequent urological anomaly, the presence of three ureters occurring in the same side, in a complete or incomplete form, is a true rarity, with less than 100 cases publicated up to date.  The present case is singular, not only because of its exceptional presentation but also because no other urological or extraurological anomalies were associated and no clinical manifestations were present.  The most relevant literature is reviewed.

Keywords : Ureter; Ureteral triplication.
