Abstract

Myelomeningocele is a congenital malformation of central nervous system associated with urinary tract anomalies in several cases. This case report describes a 19 years old, female patient, admitted in Santa Casa de Belo Horizonte Hospital where she was previously diagnosed with lumbar myelomeningocele associated, lately, with several kidneys and bladder dysfunctions, including bladder lithiasis, evaluated by laboratory findings, images, and specifics renal depuration tests such as DTPA (diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid labeled with technetium 99 m) renal scintigraphy. After nephrectomy and antibiotic treatment, the patient had an improvement of her clinical symptoms.
