Ectopic Kidney is discovered incidentally
A 27 year old woman with abnormal result on abdominal ultrasound. My colleague did not see left kidney so that he suggested that she needs to take an abdominal ct scanning. On CT scanner she has a defect of renal system. The left kidney has crossed from the left to the right side so that both kidneys are located on the same side of body. However we can also recognize two renal pelvis easily. Ectopic kidneys are thought to occur in approximately one in 1,000 births but only one in ten of these are ever diagnosed actually.It also has some evidences to believe that renal ectopia is frequently associated with congenital abnormalities of other organ systems.
