Vesicoureteral reflux(VUR) is a state that urine regurge from bladder to ureter and kidney because of congenital, structural, functional abnormality of ureterovesical junction and lower urinary tract than bladder. It may be the primary cause of recurrent urinary tract infection(UTI) in chindhood. If urine regurge with UTI, it can cause renal damage, leading to scar formation, hypertension, chronic renal failure. But upper complications can be prevented by early diagnosis and proper treatment of VUR and UTI, so clinician must focus on them in treatment of VUR. We had experienced a case of recurrent UTI with VUR regardless of consistent antibiotics therapy in 7 years old boy. Chief complain was urinary frequency. The symptom of urinary frequency was successfully treated by herb medicine(Gamijihwag-tang). So, we report this case with a brief review of related literatures.
