Abstract

We report a diagnostically challenging case of a full term baby boy with a prenatal diagnosis of a posterior urethral valve. While postnatal imaging was felt to be more consistent with Prune Belly Syndrome, cystoscopy confirmed the diagnosis of the valve. A review of the literature has shown an interesting similarity in imaging and physical exam findings and perhaps an explanation for the misdiagnosis.
