Bladder Exstrophy

What is bladder exstrophy?

Exstrophy means to “turn inside out” and that is what happens when a child is born with bladder exstrophy. In this condition, the bladder and related structures are turned inside out. Typically the skin of the lower abdominal wall that normally covers the bladder does not form properly exposing the inside of the bladder to the external world.
