Discussion : 

Discussion Diagnosis Why Prune belly Syndrome ? Short discussion on prune belly syndrome Differential Diagnosis Management

Prune Belly syndrome : 

Prune Belly syndrome Also known as Eagle –Barret syndrome /triad syndrome /abdominal musculature deficiency syndrome first described in 1839. 1 in 35,000-50,000 live births almost exclusively in males; less than 3% of cases in females 4% of all cases are products of twin pregnancies with 4 times higher incidence than singeleton. 2 times higher if pregnancy is less than 25 yrs old.

Introduction contd… : 

Introduction contd… 20% of patients are stillborn 30% die of renal failure or urosepsis within the first two years of life remaining 50% have varying degrees of urinary pathology.

Slide 19: 

TRIAD SYNDROME Abdominal wall defect Urinary tract abnormality Cyrptorchidism

Pathogenesis : 

Pathogenesis Urinary Tract Obstruction Primary Mesodermal Developmental Defect Teratogenic effect

Urinary Tract Obstruction : 

Urinary Tract Obstruction hypo plastic or dysplastic prostate obstruction of the urethra overdistension of the bladder and the upper urinary tract stretches the abdominal wall damage to the abdominal musculature and interferes with the descent of the testicles. (Wheatley et al. 1996)

Pathogenesis contd… : 

Pathogenesis contd… 2.Primary Mesodermal Developmental Defect. 3.Teratogenic effect:

Diagnostic imaging (4 groups) : 

Diagnostic imaging (4 groups) Group 1 :potters syndrome Very severe,still birth (pulmonary dysplasia). Kidneys severly dysplastic or absent complete uretheral obstruction may be associated with talipes equinovarus. Group 2 : Born with severe urinary tract abnormalities abdomina wall defects(+) Without pulmonary hypoplasia

Radiological types contd… : 

Radiological types contd… Group 3 :mild involvement of abdominal wall and urinary tract . Group 4 : Pseudo prune belly : Normal abdominal wall, absent or incomplete cryptorchidism, urinary tract like that seen with prune-belly syndrome

Abdominal Musculature: : 

Abdominal Musculature: Myopathy , patchy and asymmetrical lower ,lateral rectus involvement . Appearance initially wrinkled later "pot belly" appearance

Kidneys : 

Kidneys may be dysplastic, cystic, hypoplastic or grossly hydronephrotic prognosis may depend on degree of kidney damage chronic UTI and obstructive uropathy may lead to ESRF

Ultrasound image of Kidneys :

Ureters : 

Ureters hydro- or megalo-ureter with characteristic marked dilatation, tortuous, and elongated distal ureter most severely affected Congenital ureterovesical junction obstruction -10% vesicoureteral reflux present in most (>50%)

Slide 29: 

Excretory urography reveals tortuous dilated ureters

Urethra and prostate : 

Urethra and prostate often widely dilated may be an area of abrupt narrowing distal to dilatation. 10% with posterior uretheral valve ( Overlapping syndrome) lack of prostate differentiation / hypoplastic

Bladder : 

Bladder markedly enlarged may show an "hourglass configuration" on voiding cystogram lateral displaced ureteral orifices Complete emptying mostly patent urachus at times

Normal Vs Prunbelly : 

Normal Vs Prunbelly

Gonads : 

Gonads Cryptorchidism testicles usually intra-abdominal at the sacroiliac level complications are infertility and azospermia also at risk for testicular malignancy

Musculoskeletal : 

Musculoskeletal 20% to 50% of cases talipes equinovarus (club foot)congenital dislocation of the hipspectus excavatum or carinatum Others: polydactyly, scoliosis,, torticollis

Respiratory : 

Respiratory Classified into 2 groups: Pulmonary Hypoplasia : oligohydramnios associated with pneumothorax and; pneumomediastinum Recurrent Lobar Atelectasis and Pneumonia characteristic thoracic pectus deformity with rib flaring decreased AP diameter of chest

Other system involvement : 

Other system involvement Cardiovascular- 10% cases ASD,VSD,TOF Other Gastrointestinal – gastroschisis imperforate anus malrotation with volvulus

Differential diagnosis : 

Differential diagnosis Posterior uretheral valve Megacystis Microcolon Intestinal Hypoperistalsis syndrome Severe primary vesico ureteral reflux

Posterior uretheral valve : 

Posterior uretheral valve most common cause of bladder outlet obstruction in male children, 1 in 5000 live births Anatomy: anterior urethra (bulbous and penile urethra) posterior urethra (membranous and prostatic urethra) abnormally anterior insertion of the mesonephric (wolffian) duct on the cloaca before its division into the urogenital sinus and the anorectal canal. . 3 types (young classification) Type 1(95%) ,bicuspid valve that radiates distally from the posterior edge of the verumontanum to the anterior proximal membranous urethra Hydronephrosis,vesicoureteral reflux,bladder dysfunction

Megacystis Microcolon Intestinal Hypoperistalsis syndrome : 

Megacystis Microcolon Intestinal Hypoperistalsis syndrome predominantly in females ,4:1 Physical Examn- 1.abdominal mass, absent bowel sounds, and feeding intolerance with bilious emesis 2.Cryptorchidism(-) unlike in Prunebelly syndrome. Etiology :1.Extensive intramural fibrosis leads to destruction of intestinal intraneural network. 2.Enlarged bladder prevents normal intestinal rotation. Radiographically- 1. Enlarged Urinary Bladder (88%) with no obstruction 2. Hydronephrosis( 53%) with hydroureter 3. Dilated stomach with malroataion/vovlulus

Management : 

Management Primarily conservative Relive obstruction-pyelostomies or vesicostomies, Treatment of UTI Anterior abdominal wall repair – to prevent respiratory,intestinal and urinary complications. Orchidopexy- increased risk of malignany with undescended testis
