Report of a clinic case of a double system ectopic ureterocele in an African infant

An ureterocele is a pseudokystic dilatation of the under mucous membrane portion of the vesical ureter. It is a consequence of a lack of absorption of the Chwalla membrane during the embryonic life cycle [1]. The ureterocele appears most of the time on a double system, revealed by a simple urinary infection that can also be complicated by a pyelonephritis in other cases [2,3]. The diagnostic is made once medical imaging is under way but a scintigraphy al- lows a better appreciation of the functionality of the pyelon and research of eventual renal scars that are residuals of pyelonephritis [4]. These elements are to take into consideration in the choice of treatment. In Sub-Saharan Africa, ureteroceles are seldom diag- nosed, contrary to the West. Is the lack of African series due to scantiness of diagnostic resources or to racial distinctive feature?
