OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate a rare case of urological pathology, we report a combination of a single kidney and ureteral atresia. The treatment concept and outcome are outlined. PATIENT AND METHOD: Antenatal ultrasound had revealed urinary ascites which lead to caesarean section in the 34th gestational week. Persisting anuria was confirmed postnatally and peritoneal dialysis started on the second day of life. Subsequent laparotomy revealed ureteral atresia after 3 cm of patent ureter. We created an ileum conduit after discussing various other therapeutic options. RESULT AND CONCLUSION: A follow up of 12 months has shown steady function of the stoma with stable renal parameters. An ileal conduit represents a good option if high drainage is necessary in early childhood.
