Most bladder diverticula are associated with a neurogenic bladder or obstructive condition, but a congenital diverticulum is believed to be a congenital failure of normal muscular development. Often solitary and large congenital bladder diverticulum leads to various complications, including recurrent urinary tract infection, vesicoureteral reflux, stone formation, and incontinence. A diverticulectomy, with ureteral reimplantation, is recommended in Hutch's diverticula, as they are usually accompanied with reflux that does not spontaneously subside. We experienced a case of bilateral Hutch's diverticula, without vesicoureteral reflux, in a 15-month-old boy. This patient was successfully treated using only a bilateral diverticulectomy.
