The bladder agenesis is an extremely rare congenital genitourinary anomaly; only 60 cases have been reported in the English literature and only 19 of these were noted in viable neonates. [1] Our case represents the 20th live birth with bladder agenesis. The triad of bladder agenesis with solitary kidney and ectopic ureter is seldom compatible with life due to associated anomalies. [2,3] Successful treatment and the long-term prognosis are usually poor because of the associated abnormalities. In our case, function of left solitary kidney was good and child did not have associated life-threatening disorder. Hence child was successfully managed with continent urinary diversion with good quality of life.
