What the Expert Says:

Dear lynnhurst:

I am hoping that you checked with your pediatrician first and/or were referred to a urologist at lest one of the two times this has happened.  there are many reasons this can happen to a child not the least of which can be kidneys but many other organs and muscles in that area of the flank or back. Imaging studies are helpful as are urine samples.  Good luck with the resolution.
