Problems involving the genitourinary tract in the female infant and child make up fully 50% of the cases in a busy pediatric urology practice. Most of these patients are seen by their family physician, pediatrician, or gynecologist prior to referral. This is especially true in the emerging field of prenatally diagnosed urologic disorders. Therefore, the thrust of this work will be to present common urologic problems in the pediatric and adolescent patient, their work-up, diagnosis, and management. In addition, areas in which rapid recent progress has occurred will be outlined and emphasized.
