Urinary incontinence is a condition causing significant psychological trauma and affects the quality of life of the affected individual. Though common causes of urinary incontinence of non-traumatic aetiology in young adults include detrusor instability and congenital conditions like meningomyelocoele, an ectopic ureter is an important surgically correctable cause of urinary incontinence. The cause of incontinence in an ectopic ureter is insertion of the ureter distal to the internal urethral sphincter. The authors describe a case report of an ectopic ureter arising from a duplex moiety with poor renal function using multiple modalities. This highlights the utility of multiple modalities in arriving at an accurate diagnosis, with adequate clinically useful information. In this case, the formation of a pseudo-Diverticulum resulted in diagnostic confusion.
