Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We present a rare case of a 50-year-old woman with complete bladder, urethral, and vaginal duplication without previous urogenital system reconstruction. Our patient demonstrated a rare embryologic defect with complete bladder, urethral, and vaginal duplication without any functional dysfunction. She was able to reach adulthood without reconstructive surgery. This case allowed the unique opportunity of evaluating these urogenital anomalies at a later point in life.
