Trauma remains the leading cause of mortality in the pediatric population. Life threatening genitourinary injuries are rare and consist of a major renal or vascular injury. While genitourinary injuries should be identified in a timely fashion to minimize morbidity, the evaluation of a patient with suspected genitourinary injury should follow the precepts of trauma care: airway, breathing and circulation. Most genitourinary injuries are identified during the secondary survey or subsequent imaging and laboratory evaluation. The majority of genitourinary injuries may be successfully managed nonoperatively.
