Laparoscopy and robotic surgery are progressively gaining popularity in pediatric urology, especially for nephrectomy and orchidopexy. To our knowledge only five laparoscopic intraperitoneal appendicovesicostomy (Mitrofanoff) cases have been described in the pediatric literature. We present for the first time a case of combined use of a laparoscopic approach for appendicovesicostomy, nephrectomy and orchidopexy in an 8-year-old boy.
