The following: Posterior urethral valves form a cusp-like obstruction just below the bladder neck. Anterior urethral valves are due to a urethral out-pouching, this fills with urine and distal end becomes a "flap valve" which obstructs. Urethral atresia or congenital stricture. Ureterocele, ectopic or orthotopic can block bladder neck or prolapse causing obstruction. Vaginal atresia + urogenital sinus.

Several.: Ureteroplevic junction obstruction, ureterovesical obstruction, ureterocele, ectopic ureter, posterior urethral valves, cloacal deformity, pelvic tumors such as sacrococcygeal teratoma - among others.
