Ureterocele is a cystic dilatation of the terminal ureter. In children it is most commonly ectopic and associated with the duplex collecting system, less frequently it is intravesical and associated with the single collecting system. We present the radiological and ultrasound findings in a male newborn with bilateral intravesical ureterocele associated with hydroureteronephrosis and hyperechogenic spots in both kidneys. In the literature this association has never been reported in neonatal age.
