Bladder probing is an invasive procedure that is often used by paediatric and other surgeons. We present a case who was ureter catheterized accidentally while placing a probe into the right ureter in an 18 months old female. If different catheter localization is determined during the examination, the process must be terminated immediately and the relevant specialist should be informed right away.
