Developmental Syndromes and Malformations of the Urinary Tract

Living reference work entry


Birth defects involving the kidney and urinary system are often encountered and frequently occur in association with other structural abnormalities. A congenital urinary tract anomaly may provide the first clue to the recognition of multiorgan developmental abnormalities. Nevertheless many renal anomalies remain asymptomatic and undiagnosed. Therefore it is critical, not only for pediatric nephrologists but also for pediatricians in general, to be familiar with the common anomalies involving the kidney and urinary system and the more complex disorders with which they may be associated. This chapter will review genetic syndromes with urinary defects and provide a simplified approach to diagnose these syndromes in clinical practice.
