Bilateral foetal uropathy is the leading cause of chronic renal failure in childhood. Vesico-amniotic shunting (VAS) is a simple, feasible, and widely used procedure for decompressing the foetal urinary system. We report a case of a boy with bilateral foetal uropathy who underwent VAS at a gestational age of 29 weeks. Vesico-abdominal shunt dislodgement occurred and led to urinary ascites and anhydramnios. Postpartal laparotomy showed a shunt perforation between the urinary bladder and the peritoneal cavity.
