Abstract: The incidence of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) in the general population is less than 1%, but it is high in families with reflux. The reported prevalence of VUR among siblings of index patients with reflux has ranged from 4.7% to 51%. Reflux carries an increased risk of pyelonephritis and long-term renal impairment. The purpose of this study was to identify the age-related incidence and severity of reflux, and the frequency of associated renal parenchymal damage in siblings of children with reflux in order to as… Show more

“…We have found that reflux severity in these asymptomatic children varies widely from mild to severe (68)(69)(70). The incidence of renal cortical damage in these siblings with VUR is high (68,(71)(72)(73)(74).…”

“…The incidence of VUR in siblings in previous studies was reported as 27% by Wan et al (17) and 51% by Parekh et al (18). Hollowel and Greenfield (19) have found the incidence of VUR in siblings as 32% in their study and the incidence was found 42.5% by Ataei et al (20).…”

“…5,6 But in some recent studies from America and Europe showed that the incidence was much higher and it was 17-70% in children with UTI. [2][3][4]7 On the other hand the incidence is much lower(7%) in west African descendents. 8 There are no controversy regarding association of VUR, UTI and renal scarring.…”
