A 21 year old male consulted because of persistent right flank pain, dysuria and recurrent episodes of urinary tract infection. KUB-IVP showed bilateral hydronephrosis with right nephrolithiasis. Ultrasonography revealed bilateral bladder diverticula. Cystoscopy was done and revealed a bilateral "Hutch" diverticulum. Voiding cystourethrogram revealed visecoureteral reflux on both sides. Because of this condition, surgical correction of vesicoureteral reflux was done. Postoperative stay was unremarkable and was discharged improved.

Key words: diverticulum, "Hutch" diverticulum
