In childhood, the kidney is more susceptible to blunt trauma because it lacks the degree of protection afforded to the adult kidney by the bulk of surrounding perirenal fascia and overlying muscle. Although minor injuries to the genitourinary tract are relatively common in childhood, major trauma is fortunately rare and, with the exception of isolated blunt renal trauma, tends to occur in conjunction with other injuries.
