Abstract

Hydronephrosis post-bone marrow transplantation (BMT) diagnosed in five children, was caused by hemorrhagic cystitis and blood clots in the bladder, congenital uretro-pelvic junction stenosis and ureteral obstruction due to adenoviral infection. Patients received conservative therapy to treat the symptoms. However, hydronephrosis did not change the outcome of BMT. Therefore, we suggest less aggressive procedures to treat children with hydronephrosis.
