Ectopic ureter: a case report

J.D. Joubert


A case of ectopic ureter is recorded in the notes below. Ectopic ureters in the female can be found in the vulva, in the vagina, in the cervix or uterus, or low down in the urethra, where they are difficult to find. In the male they open into the prostatic urethra, or into the seminal yeside'or the ampulla of the vas deferens. In the male there is no incontinence or leak, as the ectopic opening is above the external sphincter and urine regurgitates back into the bladder.
