Prune, Pseudo Prune and Other Dysplastic Uropathies
Part of the
Clinical Practice in Urology
book series (PRACTICE UROLOG)
We are about to witness a revolution in our understanding of dysplastic uropathies. It may become necessary to rewrite some of the previously written chapters on the dilated urinary tract in the infant and the neonate so the dysplastic uropathies mentioned in the title of this chapter make the basis of an interesting discussion. The classic theories of renal dysplasia are no longer tenable.
