The urofacial syndrome, also known as Ochoa syndrome, is a rare autosomal recessive condition that occurs in both genders and characterized by uropathy and facial abnormalities. Early diagnosis is crucial for the management and prognosis of urinary problems due to a dysfunctional bladder. We report 11 patients with urofacial syndrome in five families from Turkey with a median follow up of 32 months (range, 2-44 months).
