Abstract

Management of pediatric urologic conditions that persist into adulthood or that have long-lasting sequelae as a result of their treatment can be a complex task. Fortunately, many urologic disease processes of infancy and childhood do not persist into adulthood. For those scenarios in which significant urologic concerns continue into the later years of life, a urologist will probably be involved in the patient's care, at least for routine checks and for when major issues develop. The intent of this text, as with the rest of the manuscript, is to provide a basic knowledge and understanding of the disease processes themselves, follow-up and "what to watch for" items.
