Amit Sharma, Radhyeshyam Chaudhari, Mukund Andankar
Anterior urethral valve (AUV) is a rare cause of obstructive uropathy in children. These are much rarer than posterior urethral valves. We report a case of a child with AUV and high grade bilateral vesicoureteric reflux. He was managed by transurethral laser ablation. The left sided reflux resolved after ablation. The right sided reflux persisted. The child is awaiting ureteric reimplantation.
