Resumo

DE LOREDO, Ricardo; FERNANDEZ, Silvina A; OCHUA, Guillermina M  e  CARPIO, Roque A. Complex uretral malformation-obstruction: prenatal ultrasonography diagnostic. Rev. argent. radiol. [online]. 2008, vol.72, n.4, pp. 439-442. ISSN 1852-9992.

We present a case of Prune Belly Syndrome in a male fetus at 20 weeks of gestation with renal pelvis dilatation, massive bladder, mega urethral and an increase of the abdominal circumference. The complex urethral malformation-obstruction is about this sequence: urethral obstruction and massive bladder distention that causes: a) abdominal distention with subsequent atrophy or hypoplasia of abdominal muscles or Prune-Belly; b) impossibility of testicular reduction or cryptorchidism; c) megaureter by retrograde pressure or reflux from bladder; d) renal dysplasia. The triad of urinary malformations, absence or hypoplasia of abdominal muscles and cryptorchidism bilateral is knows as Prune-Belly syndrome or Eagle-Barrett syndrome.

Palavras-chave : Fetal urethral obstruction; Megacystitis; Renal dysplasia; Prune-Belly syndrome; Eagle-Barrett syndrome.
