Abstract :

Urinary ascites is a rare condition and usually caused by bladder rupture. It can occur without perforation in complex urinary anomalies, such as persistent cloaca. Forniceal rupture due to UPJO and prune-belly syndrome is another cause of this entity. Bladder rupture can be congenital (due to bladder diverticula, administration of Morphine to the neonate, PUV, AUV, NB (myelomeningocele), severe infection and idiopathic) or iatrogenic secondary to umbilical vessel catheterization (the most common), traumatic catheterization and high pressure VCUG. Spontaneous bladder perforation in children is a very rare occurrence. Rarer even, is idiopathic rupture. The first such a case was presented in 2010. I will also present another case in a 15-day-old girl and discuss the diagnostic challenges and management options.
