Single system ectopic ureterocele associated with transitional cell carcinoma in the ureter has not been described previously. Only two cases of transitional cell carcinoma in a single ectopic ureter have been reported in the published literature. With the development of minimally invasive surgery, we report the first case of single system ectopic ureterocele with transitional cell carcinoma in the distal ureter that was successfully managed by laparoscopic surgery.
