From 1 January 1985 to 31 December 1990, the Northern Region Fetal Abnormality Survey received 736 notifications of fetuses with suspected urological abnormalities; a prevalence of three per 1000 births.
There was a male:female ratio of 2: 1, the ratio was higher in obstructive than in intrinsic renal parenchymal lesions.
Overall diagnostic sensitivity was 68-9% and positive predictive value 50-8%. Hydronephrosis was the most frequent antenatal diagnosis (421 cases, 57-2%): 233 (55-3%) of these were found to be normal postnatally.
There were 52 other false positive diagnoses.
