Urinary incontinence in a school-aged child is not unusual. Significant undiagnosed posterior urethral valves (PUV) in this child is unusual. PUV can be benign enough to present with difficulty initiating a urinary stream or persistent enuresis. PUV can also be severe enough to lead to end stage renal disease and renal transplant. This session will review the pathophysiology, diagnostic evaluation, treatment options and nursing interventions for the child with PUV. Individual cases will be presented.
