OTERO GARCIA, José Manuel; MALDONADO ALCARAZ, Efraín  and  WINGARTZ PLATA, Hugo. VURD syndrome with contralateral renal dysplasia in the adult. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.5, pp.535-537. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: To report one case of VURD syndrome (posterior urethral valves, vesicoureteral reflux, and renal dysplasia) in an adult. Methods: 32-year-old male patient with recurrent urinary tract infections and the diagnosis of VURD syndrome after imaging tests and cystoscopy. Results: One year after valve resection the patient keeps renal function and adequate voiding without needing dialysis. Conclusions: The VURD syndrome is a congenital disease, frequently with poor prognosis in the first years of life. Etiology is not clear. A cause-effect relationship between dysplasia and obstruction-reflux has been proposed; alternatively, the "theory of the bud" suggests vesicoureteral reflux and renal dysplasia are the result of an anomaly of the ureteral bud and not necessarily of obstruction and/or VURD per se.

Keywords : VURD; Urethral valves; Renal dysplasia.
