Vesico-Ureteric Reflux in Urinary Billharziasis
MetadataShow full item record
Cystoscopic, urographic and voiding cystogram findings on 75 consecutive patients with urinary bilharziasis have been presented. 8 cases (14 ureters) showed grade 3 vesicoureteric reflux. An attempt has been made to identify the group of patients likely to have reflux and Should be selected for micturating cystogram. Aspects of management of this disorder have been briefly discussed and it has been suggested that bilharzia associated vesico-ureteric reflux is likely to resolve on expectant measures alone.
