Posterior Urethral Valve associated with Meconium Ileus: A Case Report
Keywords:Meconium ileus, Posterior urethral valve, Gastrografin enema, Microcolon, Neonatal intestinal obstruction
Association of posterior urethral valve with neonatal intestinal obstruction is rare; rarer still is its association with meconium ileus. A 1-day-old male presented with features of neonatal intestinal obstruction. Gastrografin enemas confirmed microcolon and were therapeutic. Later, the neonate developed overflow incontinence and deranged renal functions; micturating cystourethrogram confirmed posterior urethral valve. Cystoscopic valve fulguration was performed after stabilization; outcome was favourable.
