What is a Pediatric Ectopic Ureter?

Ureters are the thin tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder. In a child with an ectopic ureter, the ureter doesn’t connect properly to the bladder and, therefore, drains somewhere else.

  • In boys, an ectopic ureter usually drains into the urethra (tube that empties urine from the bladder) closer to the prostate.
  • In girls, an ectopic ureter typically drains into the reproductive organs or urethra.

An ectopic ureter is sometimes associated with a duplex kidney, a condition in which a single kidney has two ureters.
