Ectopic ureters and ureteroceles are typically diagnosed in childhood and rarely present in adults. Nevertheless, ureteral ectopia should be included in the differential diagnosis of older patients who present with urinary tract infections or urinary incontinence. Detection is often delayed because of inadequate evaluation and heightened awareness is necessary on the part of treating physicians. Earlier detection and proper diagnosis serves to minimize morbidity and, in some cases, may maximize the possibility of renal preservation. Case reports serve to highlight the spectrum of these uncommon but clinically important anomalies.
