Diagnosis and Imaging Findings

Eagle Barrett Syndrome (also known as prune-belly syndrome [PBS]) in an adult.

Noncontrast CT scan of the abdomen shows massive hydronephrosis, with the right kidney worse than the left (Figure 1A), marked bilateral redundant hydroureter, a thick-walled bladder, and absent abdominal wall musculature (Figure 1B). A postvoid film from an IVU showed a poorly functioning right kidney with a massive renal pelvis and marked left hydronephrosis and redundant hydroureter (Figure 2).
