Vesicoureteral Reflux (VUR)

Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is an abnormal passage of urine from the bladder back up into the kidney. In children, this condition is usually caused by a congenital (present at birth) abnormality and is considered to be primary VUR. Secondary VUR is most commonly caused by a urinary tract infection.
