GENITO-URINARY ANORMALIES

The genitor-urinary anomalies include

  • Undescended testes
  • Hypospadias
  • Ectopia vesicae
  • Patent urachus
  • Urachal cyst
  • Recto urethral fistula in males with imperforate anus.

The important ones to note are obstructive type – urethral valves and obstructed ureters. Early identification and relief of the obstruction will prevent renal damage. Management of these conditions is complex and the patients need to be referred appropriately for management.
