Resolution of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) detected postnatally after urinary tract infection: mild to moderate VUR. The Southwest Pediatric Nephrology Study Group (SWPNSG) prospectively observed 113 patients aged 4 months to 5 years with grades I to III VUR detected after urinary tract infection. The SWPNSG reported on 59 children followed up with serial excretory urograms and voiding cys-tourethrography for 5 years. Mild (grade I and II) VUR resolved after 5 years in the ureters of 80% of these children, and in most cases within 2 to 3 years. Grade III VUR resolved in only 46% of ureters in children with VUR [20].
