Abdominal Pain Accompanied By Cloudy Urine In Children Aged 5 Years With Hydronephrosis?
Hello. My niece is a 5th-year-old man because he often has stomach ache and his pee is like a cloudy water and then he recommends that the ultrasound is already in the ultrasound, it turns out that the left kidney is swollen, whether the kidneys are swollen due to stomach pain. from birth but not known by his family
Swelling of the kidney is also called hydronephrosis, which is where the kidneys receive or store excessive urine because there are obstacles to the disposal of urine. In children, hydronfresis is a rare case, about 1: 100 children, and this condition can occur during the pregnancy process and can be identified during pregnancy or after the child is born, or occurs during child development.
Complaints that accompany hydronephrosis can be:
2. abdominal pain
3. pain in the back area
4. cloudy urine
6. desire to urinate that cannot be held
7. urine accompanied by blood
The cause of hydronephrosis in children is often caused by a blockage of the urine in total or in part, such as:
1. narrowing of the ureteral channel
2. the presence of tumors in the ureteral area (the duct between the kidney-bladder)
3. backflow from candlesticks to the kidneys
To help establish the diagnosis, it requires consultation and direct examination by a pediatrician, the doctor will conduct interviews, physical examinations and support examinations such as ultrasound or MRI. The results of the examination will provide information on the causes of hydronephrosis. Handling given will be adjusted to the cause.
In connection with your question, in pediatric patients, swelling of the kidneys may not be felt especially if the swelling of the kidneys has not been disrupted and urine flow can still come out even if there is a blockage in the ureter. Whenever a blockage is found, this blockage can be partial or partial, so that the urine still comes out and your nephew doesn't experience annoying complaints until this age. In addition, there are no medical data that provide adnaya information about kidney enlargement when under the age of 5 years, so this causes swelling of the kidneys not detected since the age of under five years. There is also a possibility that a congenital case in the urogenital tract can also cause kidney inflammation.
However, however, it is better for your nephew to keep control of the doctor who treats him and continue to continue the treatment according to the doctor's plan.
