Contrary to the belief of many, a medical expert, Professor Olayiwola Shittu has said that children can also suffer urinary difficulty due to errors of development in the womb before birth. In a 2016/2017 inaugural lecture of the University of Ibadan, Professor Shittu declared that most often in boys, such a difficulty in passing urine is caused by an obstruction in bladder outlet.

Although difficulty in passing urine could occur at any age, he said this is  a problem that should not be overlooked.
