Blind-ending branch of a bifid ureter or Blind-ending ureteral bud

Supine view of the pelvis from an intravenous urogram shows a short, blind-ending segment of ureter that lies just medial to the normal ureter draining the right kidney. No collecting system or functioning renal parenchyma is visualized.
Double, Ectopic Blind-end Ureter
case of a complete, ectopic blind-ending ureteral duplication in a 26-year-old man who presented with the
symptoms of an acute urinary tract infection for the first time. Since anamnestic data and clinical examination indicated a complicated urinary infection he was referred for further examination. On the left side, the imaging studies revealed a normal ureter draining the lower pole of the kidney and a blind-ending ureter with ectopia in the seminal vesicle. The patient recovered completely following surgical removal of the blind-ending ureter.
A blind-ending ureter is a rare anomaly. Most previous reports have described cases of partial ureteral duplication that resulted in a bifid ureter, also called a Y ureter. Only a few case reports of complete, blind-ending ureteral duplications have been published. Here we present clinical, diagnostic and operative findings of this rare anomaly.
The 26-year-old patient presented with dysuria, pain in the left hemi-abdomen and lumbar region, and fever
up to 39 °C lasting for three days. He had no history of previous urinary tract infections. On palpation the testes
and epididymis were normal and the patient reported no pain in the scrotum
