The presence of an ectopic ureter may be indicated by continuous wetting, seen especially in girls. In majority of such cases, an ectopic ureter is associated with a duplex collecting system and complete ureteral duplication. A 32-year-old female presented with urinary incontinence with normal voiding episodes and right flank pain. On investigation, she was found to have duplex moiety on the right-side with partially duplicated ureter and quadruple moiety on the left-side with partially duplicated quadruple ureter with ectopic opening of ureters. The patient also had right upper calyceal stone. It was successfully managed with totally minimal invasive technique with retrograde intrarenal surgery for right nephrolithiasis and left laparoscopic ureteric reimplantation for ectopic ureter. Patient was continent during the follow-up period of nine months with no significant complications. Developmental anomalies of kidney and ureter though rare, can be managed with total minimal invasive techniques, requires proper planning, instruments and its implementation.
