Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Megacystis microcolon intestinal hypoperistalsis syndrome is a rare congenital anomaly. Several pathogeneses have been described so far, but there is no single mechanism that can explain all the findings of the syndrome. Affected newborns usually present clinically in the first few days of life. The mainstay of diagnosis is a pre or a postnatal imaging evaluation using ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging. We report an unusual urinary tract finding in a patient with the classic triads of the syndrome that was diagnosed with both pre and postnatal imaging evaluation.
