Abstract:We report a rare case of bilateral retrocaval ureters associated with duplicated inferior renal cava. A 69-year-old woman was sent to our emergency room for abdominal pain. Multidetector computed tomogram with multiplanar reconstruction revealed duplicated inferior renal cavae and the bilateral ureters were positioned behind the duplicated inferior vena cava. To our knowledge, coexistence of bilateral retrocaval ureters and duplicated inferior renal cavae has not been reported in the literature.
