Late Presentation of Ectopic Ureter


Department of Urology, Walsgrave Hospital, Clifford Bridge Road, Wals-grave, Coventry CV2 2DX.


Summary— Primary urinary incontinence is a recognised symptom of ectopic ureter but it is unusual for incontinence in this condition to occur for the first time in adult life. Three cases are described of ectopic ureter presenting in adult life with incontinence; 2 were secondary to ectopic ureterovaginal fistula resulting from gynaecological procedures and one followed prolonged labour.
