Double perineal ani, a rare congenital anomaly is due to persistence of urogenital septum with widening of hind gut. Only few cases have been reported in literature. We report a rare case of double perineal ani with duplication of external genitalia and ectopia vesicae in a septicaemic male child. Ultrasonography showed no duplication of internal organs. The treatment was started with intravenous cefotaxime and amikacin but died within 2 hours of admission. Autopsy could not be done. Early presentation to hospital and multidisciplinary approach is required for management of such cases.
