Archive Of Standardized Exam Questions: Posterior Urethral Valves


This page is dedicated to organizing various examples of standardized exam questions whose answer is posterior urethral valves. While this may seem a odd practice, it is useful to see multiple examples of how posterior urethral valves will be characterized on standardized exams (namely the boards and the shelf exams). This page is not meant to be used as a traditional question bank (as all of the answers will be the same), however seeing the classic “test” characterization for a disease is quite valuable.

His vitals are within normal limits. Serum creatinine is 2.0. What is a possible diagnosis in this patient?
