Familial vesicoureteral reflux
Synonyms: Familial VUR
Familial vesicoureteral reflux is a rare non-syndromic urogenital tract malformation characterized by the familial occurrence of retrograde flow of urine from the bladder into the ureter and sometimes the kidneys. Patients may be asymptomatic or may present with recurrent sometimes febrile urinary tract infections that in case of acute pyelonephritis may lead to serious complications (renal scarring hypertension renal failure). Spontaneous resolution of the disorder is possible.
