    ABSTRACT: A rare exstrophy variant in a 1(1/2)-year-old girl is reported. The child had a wide, scar-like lesion over the lower central abdomen with divarication of the recti and a spread symphysis pubis. The underlying bladder was divided into two unequal chambers by a complete sagittal septum with only the right chamber communicating with the single urethra and the left draining by a vesicocutaneous fistula. Both kidneys were normal. The clitoris was bifid and the anus anteriorly placed. Preliminary surgical management consisted of dissection of the bladder from its prevesical covering, excision of the sagittal septum, and cystocystostomy. Postoperatively, the child had normal urinary continence. The literature is reviewed with special reference to the various forms of duplicate exstrophy.
