Urinary ascites in newborns is a rare event that usually is associated with posterior urethral valves and other obstructing anomalies of the genitourinary tract. A case of neonatal urinary ascites without genitourinary tract abnormalities is reported. This premature male neonate was treated by artificial ventilation due to respiratory distress syndrome. The umbilical artery catheter was placed without difficulties and functioned well until removal. Periumbilical leak of urine was not observed. He showed abdominal distension and oliguria on second postnatal day. He was found to have ascites, hyponatremia and elevation of BUN content disproportionate to the mild elevated serum creatinine value. Radiological examination revealed normal genitourinary tract except intraperitoneal extravasation of contrast material from the bladder. Conservative management resulted in complete resolution of the lesion in this patient.
