Circumcision: A minor procedure?
Paediatric death review committee | Office of the Chief Coroner of Ontario
A male infant at 37 weeks' gestation was born as a spontaneous vertex weighing 3.9 kg, with Apgar scores of seven at 1 min and nine at 5 min. Prenatally mild bilateral dilation of renal pelvises and ureters was noted on ultrasound. A urology consultation at 36 weeks' gestation suggested a possible normal variant and recommended a kidney ultrasound at three to five days postdelivery, with a voiding cystourethrogram to be performed if the dilation persisted.
