To determine the spectrum of urologic disease and the value of ultrasound as a screening mechanism, renal imaging was performed on 23 patients with Bardet-Biedl syndrome. On intravenous urography (IVU), abnormal calices were present in 22 patients, with communicating cortical cysts/diverticula in 17. Ultrasound detected caliceal or cystic changes in 70%. On IVU, 21 patients had fetal-type lobular outlines that were detected on sonography in 95%. Renal structural abnormalities are characteristic of the Bardet-Biedl syndrome, and are still best imaged by urography.
