Paediatric urology is a sub-specialty derived from urology and paediatric surgery. It is generally an elective surgical specialty with few acute conditions. Development of a good team incorporating a paediatric nephrologist, a radiologist, and a pathologist assists in the clinical diagnosis, management options, and follow-up. A paediatric anaesthetist and skilled experienced and compassionate nursing staff are essential to manage the children. This chapter covers the foreskin and circumcision, undescended testes and testis torsion, hypospadias, abnormalities of the urethra, ambiguous genitalia, and malignancies of the genitourinary tract.
