The article presents the clinical case of Hinman syndrome in 7-year-old child. Hinman syndrome belongs to the severe forms of neurogenic urination disorders.
This is an orphan pathology, which is not sufficiently covered in literature. As part of the discussion of the problem, we consider it necessary to pay
attention to the lack of indications for surgical treatment for this disease.

Key words: Hinman syndrome, hydronephrosis, surgical treatment, children.
