Developmental Anomalies of Kidney

Developmental anomalies of the kidneys and ureters are numerous and not only potentially render image interpretation confusing but also, in many instances, make the kidneys more prone to pathology. Some may have numerous kidneys and some have pancake like shaped kidneys. Those with Bilateral Renal Agenesis often have additional birth defects, both associated with, and a result of the absence of kidneys. With no kidneys, the fetus is unable to produce urine, which is necessary to form amniotic fluid resulting anhydromnios.
