Nature Reviews Urology, 05/10/2012
Castagnetti M et al. – Antibiotic prophylaxis might be prudent during the first 6–12 months of life in patients with high–grade hydronephrosis and hydroureteronephrosis with or without ureterocele, and particularly before completion of the diagnostic workup. Paediatric urologists are urged to embark on controlled trials to compare patients followed with and without antibiotic prophylaxis.
