Paediatric urology often presents challenging scenarios. Magnetic resonance urography (MRU) and laparoscopy are increasingly used. We retrospectively studied children affected by a disease of the upper urinary tract who after MRU were elected for laparoscopic treatment. This pictorial essay draws on our experience; it illustrates some specific MRU findings and highlights the usefulness of MRU for the diagnosis of upper urinary tract pathology in children. It also offers some examples of the potential additional diagnostic information provided by laparoscopy as well as its therapeutic role.
