Posterior urethral valve is the most common obstructive abnormality in male children affecting both kidneys and likely arise from maldevelopment of the mesonephric duct. We have experienced a case of posterior urethral valve with urinary ascites in 10/365 year old male neonate. Abdominal distension, oligouria, and azotemia were improved by urinary catheterization. Pelvo-ureterostomy operation was done, and this case had excellent results with much improved urinary stream and general condition after operation. We report this case with brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Posterior urethral valve, Urinary ascites
