Abstract: Abstract We describe a dynamic, bladder catheter-related obstructive bilateral hydroureteronephrosis in a newborn documented during ultrasound. The normal findings at foetal ultrasound and the absence of muscular hypertrophy of the bladder hereby served as indicators of the iatrogenic nature of the initial abnormal ultrasound findings. Conclusion: A Foley bladder catheter can induce obstructive bilateral hydroureteronephrosis in newborns.
