A brief discussion has been' presented regarding minimal urological evaluation and surveillance of the child with myelomeningocele. At the present time enough experience has been collected throughout the country to establish recommendations for minimal evaluation and surveillance. It is recognized that there are some additional testing procedures presently being used of as yet unknown diagnostic or prognostic potential. It is also recognized that if treatment programs change and these children live into adulthood, changes in the program for surveillance may be necessary in later childhood and adult life.
