Isolated coronal urethral duplication in an adolescent presenting with enuresis
This report describes an isolated urethral duplication in the coronal plane in a child referred with primary ‘enuresis’. This presentation is unique because duplications usually occur in the sagittal plane. In patients with suspected urethral duplication, magnetic resonance imaging in conjunction with catheterisation of the distal duplicate opening accurately delineates the abnormality, so that individualised treatment strategies can be considered.
