The variants of bladder exstrophy with duplication of the bladder are extremely rare and associated with further malformations of the genitourinary system. Initially, the clinical appearance is that of a classic exstrophy. In this case a second, regularly configured bladder with a normal supravesical urinary tract was found covered by an omphalocele like a cutaneous bag. At the same time, there was a duplication of the vagina and a bicornuate uterus. The surgical treatment, aiming at anatomic reconstruction of the genitourinary system and closure of the symphysis, was successfully performed without any complication.
