Abstract:   (5882 Views)


This study investigated a 63-day boy with end stage renal disease and abdominal

cysts. The antenatal sonography detected anhydraminos, posterior urethral valve,

and cystic dysplastic kidneys. Voiding cystourethrogram revealed two obstructive

giant diverticula which at first looked like enlarged renal pelvis. The patient had persistent

urinary tract infection and perforation of diverticula. The dialysis was ineffective

because of leakage, immeasurable inflow and dwell volume, peritonitis and tunnel

infection. As a result, the availability of automated peritoneal dialysis for infants

is recommended to reduce morbidity and increasing the survival rate. Nonetheless

the giant bladder diverticules might be better managed by diverticulectomy procedure.
