Anterior urethral valve (AUV) is a rare congenital anomaly that can lead to severe obstructive uropathy. Early diagnosis and management of AUV is very important to prevent further damage due to vesicoureteral reflux and infection. We present a neonate with febrile urinary tract infection and ultrasonography revealed hydronephrotic left kidney with a distended urinary bladder. Voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG) initially missed an AUV which was picked up on cystourethroscopy. When VCUG was examined again, an AUV without dilatation in the urethra was seen. Transurethral valve ablation was done.
