dc.description.abstract Pelvi-ureteric junction obstruction is an important cause of congenital renal and urinary tract abnormality. It is the commonest cause of antenatally detected hydronephrosis. The increasing use of antenatal ultrasound as a screening tool for congenital abnormalities in the developing foetus has resulted in a more frequent rate of detection of foetal hydronephrosis with the likely consequence of significant anxiety among parents. This is because most of these infants with antenatally detected hydronephrosis will be subjected to frequent radiological and other investigations and there will also be concern about outcome. Knowing what postnatal investigations are necessary for any child with this condition and when to do it becomes a priority. This is because it is known that a significant percentage of children with antero-posterior (AP) diameter of 12mm or less experienced complete and spontaneous resolution of the hydronephrosis in early life. This study is a retrospective folder review of one hundred children with PUJ obstruction managed at Red Cross Children’s Hospital over a six-year period from Jan 2002 to Dec 2007. en_ZA
