Abstract

Text-Size + 

  • Despite adequate bladder catheterization, a neonate with Prune Belly Syndrome developed urinary ascites secondary to forniceal rupture. Treatment consisted of bilateral cutaneous pyelostomies. Even though most children with Prune Belly Syndrome respond to lower urinary tract drainage, a cutaneous pyelostomy may be necessary when the ureters are tortuous and do not drain adequately following bladder decompression.
