Prune belly syndrome

triad of prune belly syndrome?

The triad of prune-belly syndrome is absent or deficient abdominal musculature, cryptorchidism, and urinary tract abnormalities.

What urinary tract abnormalities are associated with prune-belly syndrome?

They are diverse and include marked hydroureteronephrosis and marked bladder and urethral dilation, reflux, renal dysplasia, prostatic hypoplasia, urachal abnormalities, and microphallus. The clinical features often parallel the degree of urinary tract involvement. Newborns with severe renal dysplasia may have Potter syndrome (oligohydramnios, pulmonary hypoplasia). Children with urinary tract dilation, VUR, or both need to be closely monitored for infection.
