The Teaching Point

Pelvic kidney is a relatively common renal malformation as well as duplex kidney but the unilateral coexistence of these abnormalities is not frequently found. Ultrasonographic imaging, as first line imaging is not always diriment; it may highlight an ectopic kidney and/or a malrotation, To get a better visualization of the vascular map, a CT scan must be performed, also to obtain useful information in anticipation of an eventual surgical approach. Management of this condition depends on symptoms and on the kidney function and no treatment is required if urinary function is normal and no obstruction to the urine flow is observed with imaging techniques.

Duplex collecting system in a pelvic kidney - an unusual combination

Free full text article: Duplex collecting system in a pelvic kidney  - an unusual combination

Abstract
Pelvic kidney is a relatively common renal malformation as well as duplex kidney; however, the unilateral coexistence of these abnormalities is not frequently found. We present a case of a young woman with a history of hypertension in whom a pelvic and dysmorphic left kidney was discovered during ultrasound examination performed for the study of the renal arteries. Magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography imaging revealed a duplex pelvic kidney. This combination is very rare; we have not found a similar case reported in the literature.
