Abstract

A case report of two brothers is presented, both of whom had posterior urethral valvular obstruction. The younger brother's condition was confirmed by necropsy and the older sibling, whose case was discovered through direct inquiry of the mother, was determined at cystoscopy and then corrected surgically. A review of the historical background of urethral valves is given followed by a brief discussion concerning the diagnosis and management of this condition. When a young patient with a urological anomaly is found, the parents should always be questioned concerning the siblings.
