Abstract

Neonatal infravesical obstruction in females is less common than in boys and rarely reported. In this article, we report on 3 cases of infravesical obstruction in female neonates with different etiologies. We also reviewed the literature on this topic. Including our cases, 17 cases of neonatal infravesical obstruction in girls have been reported. Neonatal infravesical obstruction in females has different underlying pathology compared to boys with congenital tumors being more common in girls. A high index of suspicion is essential for early recognition and management.
