Urologist 's  Response
Your son definitely needs urological opinion. Any uti in a child is abnormal and mostly it will be because of some underlying structural or functional abnormality of urinary tract. He needs complete urine analysis, kidney function tests, ultrasound of the abdomen and an x-ray called voiding cystourethrogram. Please visit a urologist.
