Abstract

Urethral atresia is a rare and usually fatal cause of prenatal bladder outlet obstruction. We present a case of urethral atresia with urinary ascites to highlight the difficulties in making the diagnosis in the absence of hydronephrosis. We also discuss possible reasons why this patient maintained normal renal and pulmonary function.
