Summary at a Glance
This authors examine the AGTR2 gene polymorphisms in Brazilian children with CAKUT, and find an association of AGTR2 gene polymorphisms with ureteropelvic junction obstruction. Since CAKUT is a prevalent disease in children with CKD, the findings observed in this manuscript will contribute to a better understanding of the pathogenesis of CAKUT.
