Abstract

UTI is common childhood infection yet frequently missed. The anomalies of genito-urinary tract are important predisposing factor for UTI. Certain anomalies of external genitalias points towards these internal urogenital anomalies. Present case an infant of 11 months with predominant presentation of bronchiolitis also had micropenis, which lead to focused renal screening and detection of multiple urological anomalies. Infant responded well to the treatment and is doing well on follow up.
Learning Points: Careful genital examination for external genital anomalies can help to unmask serious yet asymptomatic underlying urological malformation, if present should be followed by urine R/M +/-C/S.
