Single System Ectopic Congenital Giant Megaureter Associated with Ipsilateral Multicystic Dysplastic Kidney
Congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) is a disease spectrum of a wide range of structural and functional anomalies. In this report, we have presented a rare case of CAKUT displaying the wide spectrum of renal and urinary tract anomalies with an unusual association like single system ectopic giant megaureter with the ipsilateral multicystic dysplastic kidney.
