Posterior urethral valves have myriad presentations based on the severity of obstruction with the milder end of spectrum often termed as mini-valves. The simultaneous occurrence of ureteropelvic junction obstruction and urethral valves has not been described before and is most likely coincidental. Herein, we discuss the management of three boys who had febrile urinary tract infection following pyeloplasty and on evaluation were found to have valves. This article highlights the need for considering these mini-valves as a possibility in boys presenting with symptoms following pyeloplasty so as to avoid delay in diagnosis and unnecessary morbidity in these children.
