2 years 6 month old Indian Girl with recurrent UTI from the age of 1 year. Referred to me by a Paediatrician from a neighbouring state. Investigations revealed that the child had Bilateral Duplex Kidneys. On the left there was a very hydronephrotic Upper Moeity with its grossly dilated ureter and a large ureterocoele in the bladder. There was no discernible function in the left  upper Moiety . Hence a Laparoscopic Left Upper Hemi-nephroureterectomy was performed. The child recovered extremely well.
