It is more prevalent in children, that is related to the high incidence of multiple congenital anomalies associated with the horseshoe kidney, some of which are incompatible with long- term survival. Case: The patient was a 25 years old man who presented with RLQ pain from 2 months before admission. In physical Examination, there was tenderness in this area. All routine lab data were in normal range. Sonography showed normal left kidney , absence right kidney and a large cystic structure occupying the left and posterior aspect of the bladder. IVP showed non visualization of right kidney , malrotation of left kidney and a filling defect in the right side of the bladder. C.T. Scan with and without IV contrast confirmed above data. Cystoscopy revealed hemitrigone with a mass effect . Surgical exploration showed, ectopic right ureter within ejaculatory ducts. All its abnormal course, deviating to left side and ending in a fibro vascular structure attached to an isthmus on vertebral column. 2 months later the patient were admitted in neurosurgical ward and underwent craniotomy due to brain aneurysm.
