Three patients had megacystis microcolon intestinal hypoperistalsis (MMIH), 2 had intestinal neuronal dysplasia (IND), 2 had Waardenburg syndrome (WS), and 1 had enteric anendocrinosis (EA), while the etiological cause could not be found for 5 patients.
In the neonatal period and in infancy, AUVs may cause severe obstruction resulting in megacystis, bladder rupture, bilateral hydroureteronephrosis, urinary ascites, and azotaemia (5).
The differential diagnosis of ANH, in order of likelihood, includes transient primary hydronephrosis, uretero-pelvic junction obstruction (UPJO), vesicoureteric reflux (VUR), uretero-vesical junction obstruction (UVJO) or primary non-obstructive megaureter, ureterocele, ectopic ureter and causes of megacystis. Megacystis, or dilated urinary bladder, includes causes of bladder outlet obstruction due to posterior urethral valves (PUV) and less commonly Prune Belly syndrome, Megacystis-Megaureter syndrome, megacystis-microcolon intestinal hypoperistalsis syndrome (MMIHS), anterior urethral valves, megalourethra, urethral atresia and cloacal anomalies.
