The infant autopsies were scrutinised to find the incidence, etiology & significance in terms of fatality of urinary tract anomalies. On analysing 1329 infant autopsies, 24 cases (1.8%) of significant urinary tract anomalies were found. There was marked male predominance. Intrauterine obstruction of urinary tract was the main etiological factor leading to dysplastic changes in the renal tissue. Dysplasia is severe in extent and may be associated with persistent blastemal zones when the obstruction is complete & bilateral in nature.
