Thirteen children with diverticulum of the bladder are described. Twelve were boys and one a girl. The children form two groups—those with infravesical obstruction and those with no obstruction.
Eight children with diverticulum of the bladder were among 487 children investigated for persistent urinary incontinence.
The incidence, pathology, symptoms, signs, diagnosis and treatment of diverticula of the bladder are discussed. In eight cases the diverticulum was not removed. The results of treatment are reviewed.
