Uretero-vesical junction obstruction
Which are the symptoms?
Presence of hydroureter and hydronephrosis with normal bladder.
The dilated ureter is tortuous and appears as a collection of cysts of variable size, localized between the dilated renal pelvis and the bladder.

Detailed ultrasound examination.

Standard obstetric care and delivery.
Postnatal intervention is indicated if the vesico-uretric reflux is associated with abnormal renal function.
