Abstract

Documentation of unique kidney renal function early in pregnancy can be helpful in defining prenatal management and therefore in improving prognosis. Antenatal diagnosis of a solitary kidney was performed at 20 weeks' gestation in a foetus with a 1,7 chromosome translocation. Because of the decreasing renal function and the increasing pelvic dilatation, an early in utero stenting was placed at 23 weeks' gestation. Optimal outcome occurred and the baby was delivered at 32 weeks. Complete assessment of the malformation showed a left hydronephrosis due to a megaureter, right renal agenesis with ipsilateral cryprorchidism and agenesis of the right vas deferens. The chromosomic translocation was inherited from the mother who was affected by uterus didelphys, obstructed right hemivagina and right renal agenesis. Renal function of the unique kidney with hydronephrosis can be early diagnosed and promptly treated. This condition should also increase the index of suspicion of underlying genital and chromosomal anomalies.
