Anorectal Malformations (ARM) are known to be associated with urogenital abnormalities. However, the incidence of ectopic ureter in these patients is rare. This report is about a two-year-old male child with ARM. The patient presented after a failed Posterior Sagittal Anorectoplasty (PSARP). The presenting complaint was urinary leak from rectum. Subsequently, the patient was taken up for redo-PSARP. During surgery, bilateral ectopic ureters were identified, incidentally. Surgeons operating on the patients of ARM should be vigilant about this rare association of ectopic ureter with ARM, so as to avoid its injury during perineal dissection.
