Abstract

Ureteral triplication is a very rare anomaly found in the upper urinary tract. This
condition can be connected with a higher incidence of congenital anomalies and predisposition for
urinary infections. Operative procedure is considered in cases where symptoms reduce the patient’s
quality of life. The type of surgical treatment depends on symptom manifestation. The risk of renal
failure is usually a deciding factor, which can be found in conditions such as vesicoureteral reflux, obstruction,
ureteral ectopy and recurrent infections. Simultaneous treatment of upper and lower urinary
tract can be performed. We report a case of a 38-year-old female patient diagnosed with cervical
carcinoma, where ureteral triplication was detected incidentally during a radical operative procedure.
