Single ectopic ureters terminating in the female genital tract are rare congenital anomalies caused by an abnormally lateral origin of the ureteric bud from the mesonephric duct in the three- to four-week embryo. The ureter remains intimately involved with mesonephric duct remnants, which acquire a communication with müllerian structures. Hysterosalpingography in a continent infertile patient outlined a single cervical ureter from a hypoplastic kidney draining into Gartner's duct remnants. No previous case of single cervical ectopic ureter has been reported without a müllerian anomaly, nor has a single cervical ureter been demonstrated on hysterosalpingography.
