Atypical Genitalia (Differences of Sex Development)

A fetus may develop along a path that is not the typical one for a boy or a girl. When sex development follows a less common path, the result is a difference of sex development.

Bladder Exstrophy

A severe deformity of the bladder requiring major reconstructive surgery at delivery.

Bladder Stones (Calculi)

Deposits of minerals such as calcium and magnesium that crystallize, sometimes causing severe pain in the lower abdomen and back, difficult or frequent urination, blood in the urine, and fever.

Buried Penis

Partially or completely concealed beneath the scrotum or excess skin or fat in the pubic area, typically of normal size and function.

Chordee

A condition where the penis curves in a downward direction, typically developing while the child is still in the womb. Severe cases can impact the functioning of the penis.

Cloacal Anomalies

Congenital malformations of the female genitourinary and anorectal anatomy. The most common is persistent cloaca where openings to the bladder, vagina, and rectum are fused.

Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia

A disorder in which the body’s two adrenal glands have an enzyme-making defect. Without the enzymes, the adrenals can't make the hormones cortisol, aldosterone and androgens.

Constipation

A decrease in frequency of bowel movements compared to a child's usual pattern, bowel movements that are difficult or painful to push out, stools that irritate or tear the anus.

Duplicated Collecting System (Also Duplicated Kidney)

Two ureters for one kidney, each one draining separately into the bladder.

Dysfunctional Voiding

Dysfunctional voiding is a condition where the bladder does not empty normally or fully.

Ectopic Ureter

A rare condition where the ureter (the tube that moves urine from the kidney to the bladder) does not attach correctly to the top of the bladder but to some other location instead.

Enuresis (Nighttime Wetting)

Occurring during sleep ("bedwetting"), it is called nocturnal enuresis or nighttime wetting. Nocturnal enuresis is the most common bladder function disorder in children.
