Abstract

Urethral duplication (UD) in females is a rare congenital anomaly and requires a high degree of clinical suspicion for diagnosis. The preoperative evaluation requires thorough investigations to delineate anatomy which is imperative for surgical reconstruction to provide excellent functional and cosmetic outcome. We describe the successful management of a 6‑year‑old girl with UD (presented as ambiguous genitalia and urinary incontinence) along with a review of pertinent literature.

Key words: Ambiguous genitalia, female pseudohermaphroditism, urethral duplication
