Purpose: search for ultrasound markers of kidney wrinkling.
Clinical case. The article presents a clinical observation of a 10-year-old child with vesicoureteral reflux, which led to the secondary wrinkling of the kidney, the discussion of which included anamnestic data, laboratory and instrumental research methods, and diagnostic criteria for the disease. The child was examined according to the standards of nephrological patients. The author of the article performed an ultrasound examination of the bladder and kidneys with Doppler. Modern ultrasound and Doppler markers of vesicoureteral reflux in children are covered.
Conclusions. The use of captured ultrasound features allows early non-invasive diagnosis of secondary renal wrinkling due to vesicoureteral reflux and its timely treatment.
Surveys were conducted in compliance with bioethics, the authors obtained informed parents consent to conduct research.
No conflict of interest was declared by the authors.
Key words: vesicoureteral reflux; wrinkling of the kidney; ultrasound markers.
