Vesicoureteral reflux is the regurgitation of bladder urine into the upper urinary tract regardless of urinary tract infection. The results of vesicoureteral reflux are renal scarring, hypertension and proteinuria etc. We experienced a case of vesicoureteral reflux associated with cardiomyopathy in a 10 year old female patient who had dyspnea and orthopnea and treated with surgical and medical therapy. A brief review of the related literature was added.
