Abstract

Isolated congenital megacystis represents a rare variant of fetal megacystis without other associated anomalies. The etiology is unclear, and various management strategies have been proposed. We report a case of isolated congenital megacystis that resolved over the first year of life with observation alone. Considerations for the evaluation and management of this rare entity are discussed.
