As described earlier, there are 2 kidneys - each has a pelvis, a ureter that opens in the bladder. Normally, the flow of urine is from above downwards only. In some children, it is possible that there may be in addition, a flow of urine from below upwards into the ureter and the kidney- this is called Reflux of urine.
Reflux of urine has been known to cause a lot of major problems if undetected and hence untreated. Some of these problems are easily treatable by oral medications, but, some may require an operation to correct the abnormality.
