Pediatrician, Critical Care 's  Response
Thanks for posting your query here at Healthcaremagic.

I would like to get more information:
1. Status of Rt PUJ. Has your doctor mentioned that it needs to be relieved or not?
2. What his kidney function tests were? (Bl Urea, Creatinine, Calcium and Phosphorus etc)7

Unless the child has significantly poor kidney functions (Chronic renal failure), kidney problems per se are unlikely to cause nose bleeding.

Does he have tendency to pick the nose?

I would advise to get him checked over by a Pediatrician. He may need a blood test to find out his Platelet count and clotting factors (these things help blood to form a clot following an injury or a leak).

I hope I've able to answer your query.
