Abstract: 

Introduction and Objectives: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most important diseases among children and young infants. Imaging evaluations in pediatric UTI is done to determine predisposing factors and high-risk children. We evaluated two pediatric groups (younger and older than 5 years) with first UTI and normal ultrasonography of urinary tract, to determine the rate of VUR.
Materials and Methods: In this cross-sectional descriptive study, 104 of 320 children were studied using Cystourethrography. The results were compared in patients younger or older than 5 years.
Results: 21 (21.2%) and 83 (79.8%) patients were older or younger than 5 years. VUR was seen in 4 (19%) and 18 (21.7%) of the older and younger groups, with no statistically significant difference between the two groups.
Discussion: Probably VCUG has significant importance in radiologic evaluation of the first UTI of the children older than 5years old, and in presence of normal ultrasonography We recommend additional studies.
