Abstract

We report a case of a complete, ectopic blind-ending ureteral duplication in a 26-year-old man who presented with the symptoms of an acute urinary tract infection for the first time. Since anamnestic data and clinical examination indicated a complicated urinary infection he was referred for further examination. On the left side, the imaging studies revealed a normal ureter draining the lower pole of the kidney and a blind-ending ureter with ectopia in the seminal vesicle. The patient recovered completely following surgical removal of the blind-ending ureter.

Abstract in Croatian

DUPLI EKTOPIČNI »SLIJEPI« URETER: PRIKAZ SLUČAJA ----- Prikazan je slučaj kompletne duplikature uretera sa slijepim završetkom kod 26 godišnjeg muškarca, koja se po prvi puta prezentirala sa simptomima infekcije urinarnog trakta. Budući da su anamnestički podaci te klinički pregled upućivali na kompliciranu urinarnu infekciju bolesnik je upućen u daljnju obradu. Metode slikovnog prikaza su pokazale na lijevoj strani jedan normalni ureter iz donjeg pola bubrega i jedan »slijepi« ureter koji završava uz gornji pol istog bubrega s ektopijom u sjemene mjehuriće. Nakon kirurškog odstranjanja slijepog uretera bolesnik se kompletno oporavio.
