This case relates to a child with an antenatal diagnosis of severe bilateral hydronephrosis with congenital anomalies of the ureters, bladder, and urethra. We describe the presentation and surgical management, highlighting the complexity of this anomaly and the surgical technique used to reconstruct the lower urinary tract. To our knowledge, there has not been a similar case in the literature and the use of a segment of colon for ureteric substitution in children has not been previously reported in the literature.
