Acanthosis nigricans: a warning sign of lower urinary tract dysfunction in obese children?

In the pediatric age group, there have been very few studies examining the relationship between lower urinary tract dysfunction and obesity-related metabolic disorders. This study looked at the relationship between LUTD and metabolic abnormalities in obese children. Obese children with and without LUTD were divided into two groups based on DVISS symptom scores based on symptom scores. RESULTS: In 19% of the study population, lower urinary tract dysfunction was present. LUTD and the presence of metabolic syndrome or insulin resistance were found in no statistically significant association, but a significant association was found between LUTD and acanthosis nigricans. Only the presence of acanthosis nigricans was risk of lower urinary tract dysfunction by 1. 75 percent, according to a regression report. CONCLUSION: The presence of acanthosis nigricans in obese children may indicate simultaneous occurrences of lower urinary tract dysfunction that should be investigated further.
