Thanks for your query.

Urinary tract involvement in the Prune Belly syndrome( Eagle-Barrett syndrome; Triad syndrome) is a very common issue.

Well the exact reason for the blood in the urine could only be ascertained by getting investigations like Urine routine analysis to rule out infections and a Ultrasound scan to rule out bladder stones and other structural abnormalities. Both will give insights into the cause and help in further management.

As for your friends problem I consider it to be hormonal imbalance,I would advice her to consult a gynecologist without waiting anymore.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
