A 35-year old female presented with paradoxical urinary incontinence. Examination under general anesthesia did not reveal any abnormality and cystoscopy showed absent right hemitrigone. Radiological and other renal imaging modalities revealed absent right kidney and normal functioning left kidney. Simultaneous localization and removal of small dysplastic right kidney was carried out by transperitoneal laparoscopy. Role of laparoscopy is emphasized in patients presenting with paradoxical urinary incontinence with no "visible" kidney/ureteric orifice on conventional evaluation.
