With current advances in antenatal medicine it is feasible to diagnose prenatal anomalies earlier and potentially treat these anomalies before they become a significant postnatal problem. We discuss different methods and signs of urogenital anomalies and emphasize the use of telemedicine to assist patients and healthcare providers in remote healthcare facilities, in real time. We discuss prenatal urogenital anomalies that can be detected by antenatal ultrasound and fetal magnetic resonance imaging. Ultimately, we address the natural history of urogenital anomalies, which need surgical intervention, and emphasize ex-utero intrapartum treatment procedures and other common surgical techniques, which alter the natural history of urogenital anomalies.
