Urethral duplication, bladder duplication, and bladder exstrophy are rare congenital urinary tract anomalies. We present an extremely rare case of complete urethral and bladder duplication in a boy with bladder exstrophy, omphalocele, and colonic duplication. Bladder augmentation was subsequently performed using the left exstrophic bladder as a patch to augment the right duplicated bladder.
