After an ultrasound during a Well Baby visit, my daughter (15 months) was diagnosed with "Caliectasis" in her left kidney. She underwent the VCUG test a week later and there are no signs of reflux. We are relieved.
Now that we've determined reflux is not the cause of the Caliectasis, what is the next step in identifying the cause?
The Pediatric Clinic appears to be content with the negative results of the VCUG and does not appear to be trying to identify the cause of the Caliectasis.
What questions do I need to be asking and should I be asking the Pediatric doctor or the Urologist?
