Spontaneous intraperitoneal extravasation of urine is rare. Perirenal urinoma may develop when obstruction to urinary flow creates sufficient back pressure to produce extravasation of urine. Urinary ascites most commonly indicate a disruption to the integrity of the urinary tract. We report a case of urinary ascites with urinoma resulting from an ureteropelvic junction obstruction in a neonate.
Key Words: Ascites; Urinoma; Ureteral obstruction
