ABSTRACT: Neonatal urinary ascites due to bladder perforation, in the absence of any obvious urinary outlet obstruction, is rare. Early diagnosis and management by peritoneal paracentesis and urethral catheterization lower the morbidity and mortality. We report a case of neonatal urinary ascites in girl who had an intra-peritoneal bladder rupture, presenting with gross abdominal distension and respiratory distress. She ha hypospadias and has been under follow-up for the last nine year.
