ABSTRACT: Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) in 30 patients of surgically treated congenital urinary anomalies was evaluated. Role of circumcision in prevention of UTI in these patients was studied. It was found that the patients who had positive urine culture inspite of chemoprophylaxis became negative after circumcision over an average period of 22 days. Circumcision reduces the incidence of persistent UTI in spite of surgical treatment in patients with congenital urinary tract anomaly and serves as a complement to chemoprophylaxis. To our knowledge this is the first study showing the efficacy of circumcision in preventing UTI in patients with congenital urinary tract anomaly.
