Urinary Tract Infections

Are urinary infections common in CdLS?

I do not believe recurrent urinary infections are common with CdLS. I do not think I would recommend anything other than monitoring of the infection, and whenever there is one infection, it is recommended to check a renal (kidney) ultrasound and VCUG (voiding cystourethrogram) to make sure no anomalies are present.
