Ectopic ureter


Ectopic ureter is a condition in which the ureter, the tube that carries urine from the kidneys to the bladder, does not open in its normal anatomical position. Instead, the ureter may open into other parts of the urinary tract or anatomical structures other than the bladder. This condition can cause problems with urine drainage and may lead to urinary tract infections and renal complications.


  • Recurrent urinary tract infections: Abnormal urine flow due to ectopic ureter can increase the risk of urinary tract infections.
  • Pain or discomfort in the lower back or abdomen: Abnormal urine flow can cause pain or discomfort in the lower back or abdomen.
  • Blood in the urine: In some cases, ectopic ureter can cause blood in the urine.


To understand the most appropriate treatment for ectopic ureter, it is advisable to schedule an appointment with Professor Christian Gozzi for a specialized consultation.
