Kiliś-Pstrusińska, Katarzyna; Pukajło-Marczyk, Agnieszka; Patkowski, Dariusz; Zalewska-Dorobisz, Urszula & Zwolińska, Danuta


Background: Spontaneous kidney rupture could develop in the course of posterior urethral valve (PUV), the most common cause of outflow urinary tract obstruction in male infants. However, urinary extravasation is a rare complication among this group of children.
Case Presentation: Our case report presents diagnostic difficulties connected with spontaneous kidney rupture due to PUV in a 6 week-old infant. Due to not equivocal images, thundery course of disease and rapid deterioration in the infant`s condition, the patient required an urgent laparatomy.
Conclusion: This case showed that the investigation of renal abnormalities during early neonatal period, is very important specifically in PUV that can lead to kidney rupture.
