Moderate antenatal renal pelvic dilation (5-15 mm) may suggest vesicoureteric reflux, but it is not known to predict renal scarring. Dimercaptosuccinic acid scans on such children aged over 4 years showed a scarring rate (0/133 boys, 1/56 girls) similar to our local population. Investigation and treatment of moderate dilation may not be required.
