Abstract

Ureteropelvic junction obstruction is a rare congenital abnormality. The mode of
inheritance is thought to be autosomal dominant with variable expressivity. Here, a consanguineous family whose three siblings diagnosed to have various degree of ureteropelvic junction obstruction is presented. Ureteropelvic junction obstruction may have a genetic background and may recur in subsequent pregnancies. Furthermore, genetic thrombophilias may be associated with urinary abnormalities. Further molecular studies are necessary to prove that finding.
