Congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) comprise a spectrum of malformations that occur at the level of the kidney (e.g., hypoplasia and dysplasia), collecting system (e.g., idiopathic hydronephrosis, ureteropelvic junction obstruction, and megaureter
), bladder (e.g., ureterocele and vesicoureteral reflux), or urethra (e.g., posterior urethral valves) .
an obstructive megaureter
in three patients and ectopic obstructive ureterocele in two patients.
is defined as dilated ureter with or without dilatation of the renal pelvis and calyces.
Ureteral and urethral abnormalities Ureteropelvic junction obstruction Ureteral duplication/bifid ureter Vesicoureteral reflux Primary megaureter
Ureteral ectopia Posterior urethral valves In combination with A, B, or C III.
In children, ultrasound is useful as a screening examination to evaluate for hydro nephrosis, megaureter
, and renal ectopia.
