Upper urinary tract abnormalities are relatively common and may be diagnosed before or at birth. Some cases will be seen during complications that most often are obstructive. We herein report one case of complete right ureter duplication revealed by sepsis. The case involved one little girl aged 3 years, referred from a peripheral health center for prolonged fever. Physical examination found out a right flank mass connecting with the lumbar spine, renal ballottement, and pain due to a blow to the right flank. Further explorations helped establish the diagnosis of complete duplication of the right ureter with the destruction of the upper renal pelvis. Little girl benefitted from a dual antibiotic therapy combined with partial nephrectomy of the right kidney upper pole. Infectious are serious complications in upper urinary tract obstructions resulting in kidney destruction; therefore, early diagnosis is required.
