Urological conditions in pregnancy represent a major diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. During pregnancy the urinary tract undergoes some anatomical and physiological changes that may result in many symptoms and pathological conditions affecting both the mother and fetus. With prompt evaluation and expeditious treatment, the prognosis is good. Fear of causing harm is unfounded. This article describes urological problems in pregnancy, specifically infection, calculus, renal failure, renal tumour, lower urinary tract symptoms and trauma and their management.
