In cases with incomplete ureteric duplication, lower pole ureteropelvic junctionobstruction (UPJO) may occur as an unusual entity. Surgical reconstruction ofUPJO can be with different techniques such as pyeloplasty, pyeloureterostomy orureteroureterostomy. In our case, the connecting segment distal tothe pelvioureteric junction was found short and we performed direct pyeloureteralside-to-side anastomosis, with a double j catheter. It is helpful to determine priorto reconstruction of a short lower pole ureteral length.
