ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Horseshoe kidney

History: 20 day-old male with known history of congenital heart disease that was noted to have an elevated BUN

Findings: Bilateral kidneys show normal upper and mid-pole contour. The lower poles bilaterally are not well defined. Transverse views show connecting renal parenchyma (isthmus) with associated isthmus vascular flow. Also the renal cortex bilaterally is increased in echogenicity. There is no evidence of mass or hydronephrosis.

Ddx: Horseshoe kidney, crossed fused renal ectopia, malrotated or ectopic kidneys, gibbous deformity of the spine (resulting in altered renal axis)

Exam: PE: unknown Labs: BUN 22 mg/dL (NML 9-20 mg/dL)

No MeSH data available.
