The cecoureterocele differs from the usual ectopic ureterocele because it extends outside the bladder and may obstruct the urethra. The differentiation requires careful examination of the urethra by a voiding cystourethrogram and cystoscopy. We describe the management of a girl with bilateral cecoureteroceles who presented as a newborn with urinary retention and sepsis. Surgical correction of the cecoureterocele may differ from that required for the usual ectopic ureterocele.
