Abstract


Congenital abnormalities /manifestations of the kidneys and urinary tract are one of the most common sonographically
identified malformations / manifestation in the prenatal period. The aim of prenatal diagnosis is to detect those
anomalies having impact on the prognosis of the affected child and requiring early postnatal evaluation or treatment to
minimize adverse outcomes.
In this paper, We present 10 cases of congenital renal malformations and 7 cases of renal manifestations in rural
population.
Out of 17 cases of renal malformations/manifestation in the rural area ,1 case is of ARPKD ,1 case of multicystic dysplastic
kidney ,1 case of posterior urethral valve ,1 case of vesicoureteric junction obstruction ,1 case of Unilateral renal
agenesis ,1 case of horse shoe kidney disease,3 cases of ectopic kidney ,1 case of pelviureteric junction obstruction
,and 4 cases of mild antenatal hydronephrosis,2 cases of moderate antenatal hydronephrosis and 1 case of severe
antenatal hydronephrosis.
