Urinary incontinence in girls could be due to ectopic ureteral insertion inside the vagina, a condition that is difficult to diagnose. In these patients, the urinary tract may be duplicated or single and be associated with a dysplastic kidney. We report two girls with dribbling of urine due to single ectopic ureteral insertion into the vagina. Computerised tomography urogram, retrograde contrast study and isotope scan revealed poorly functioning ectopic kidney. Hence, both patients underwent laparoscopic nephroureterectomy which led to the resolution of symptoms.
