Urinary ascites from bladder perforation in neonate is a rare event reported to occur more commonly following umbilical artery catheterization. Other causes include bladder perforations in neonates with bladder abnormalities, following bladder instrumentation or idiopathic bladder perforations. The present manuscript describes a full-term female neonate with spontaneous bladder perforation who was successfully managed with early operative intervention. We also present a review of the current literature and also discuss the pathogenesis, diagnosis and management of this rare entity.
