Dimitrichka Bliznakova

Abstract

Congenital urinary tract anomalies (CUTAs) are common pathology of the urinary tract in childhood. They present with a variety of symptoms in most patients. Some CUTAs can be diagnosed as an accidental finding during the ultrasound examination on another occasion. CUTAs can accompany other genetic syndromes in children, too. The significance of CUTAs is determined by the complications caused by them. They underlie the urinary tract infections and nephrolithiasis. CUTAs can lead to a chronic renal disease in a significant percentage of cases. Therefore, they require a sufficient physician's knowledge about their clinical presentation, appropriate diagnostic approach and timely prevention of complications. In the present brief survey, some features of the most common CUTAs in children are presented.
