What is the treatment for ureteric reflux in children?
Q: My friend's 3-year-old son has gone through micturating cytourethrogram as advised by the doctor. The report shows grade 1 vesico ureteric reflux on the right side? What is the course of treatment and precautions that have to be taken for this?
A:You have not written why the MCU was done in the first place. I presume he must have had a urinary infection. Anyway, grade 1 reflux is a minor problem. In a majority of children, it will disappear spontaneously and will not require any surgery. He may however, be required to take a low dose of antibiotics daily till the reflux disappears.
