Posterior urethral valves are tissue leaflets fanning distally from the prostatic urethra to the external urinary sphincter. It is the most common obstructive uropathy leading to childhood renal failure. It constitutes a clinical spectrum ranging from severe forms to milder forms. When obstruction can be overcome by detrusor contraction, it may remain silent until later life
