Abstract: Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is a common congenital anomaly with a high risk of recurrent urinary tract infections (UTI) and, as a consequence, scarring of the renal parenchyma. Additionally, high-grade reflux is often associated with congenital renal damage (hypodysplasia). A clear heredity is seen, although genetic factors are only known for a minority of cases. The aim of this thesis was to study the heritability and genetic contribution as well as to compare the differences between familial a... more
