Routine use of diagnostic ultrasound in pregnancy has led to the detection of urologic abnormality in many fetuses. The most common abnormality detected is hydronephrosis caused by the P.U.J. obstruction followed by multicystic dysplastic kidney . Bilateral renal dysplasia or agenesis may be associate with oligohydramnios. However antenatal diagnosis of posterior urethral valves may be missed unless a scan is undertaken late in pregnancy. A cross sectional study was conducted on 500 school going children of both sexes. An informed consent was obtained followed by a visit to the institution. Children were subjected to physical examination, blood pressure recording and urine was collected and further analyzed. Culture repeated on cases with significant have shown the growth of same organism in 7 cases. Thus asymptomatic bacteriuria was taken as 1.4%.E. coli (42.8%) was the most common isolated organism followed by Klebsiella (28.5%).
