The incidence of UMNB was 67.35 in those with verterbral level T7 orabove, 53.3% in T8-T10. The incidence of LMNB was 62.5% in those with vertebral level T11 or below. 2. Overalincidence of urinary tract calculus was 32.7%. Highest incidence of calculus was 46.7% in those with vertebrallevel T8-T10. 3. Overall incidence of vesicoureteral reflux was 23.1%. Highest incidence of reflux was 46.7% inthose with vertebral level T11 or below. 4. Overall incidence of pyelonephritis was 26.9%. 5. Overall incidence ofhydronephrosis was 20.2%. Highest incidence of hydronephrosis was 27.5% in those with vertebral level T11 orbelow. 6. Almost entire urethra was shown funnel type in 66 out of 73 cases.
