Recently there have been recommendations from many different groups - the AAP; AUA; RIVUR study; and the AAP Section of Urology on evaluation and treatment guidelines. Many of these contradict each other. Does evaluation start at the top down or bottom up? Do we use prophylactic antibiotics? Are they useful? A point-counter point discussion of these controversies/recommendations will be presented. Bring your questions and experiences to share in an open discussion.
