We report a case of a male cadaver, of 40 years of age. We observed two ureters on the left kidney and two ureters on the right kidney. In this case, the ureters originated from the upper and lower poles, whereby, those from upper poles of the kidneys were longer than those from lower poles. On both sides the ureters opened separately into the urinary bladder. Bilateral double ureters are very rare anatomical variations. Knowledge of anatomical variations of the urinary system is of great importance for not only urological conditions but also in surgeries involving renal transplant and radiological examinations interpretation. If urologists and clinicians generally have a sound knowledge on anatomical variations it would ease management and surgical interventions, as this may reduce unnecessary complications.
