    • thank you for your comment, you are right, there are axis deviation, vas shape ureter and malrotation which both are sign of Horseshoe kidney but there is 2 other missing sign which is the low lying and the isthmus. our next step was to do CT scan of abdomen and pelvis. which as I tell you our radiologist refuse to do it for children, she do it in pediatric Hospital , the result came with nothings new. they gave us a film with only few pictures. I think that the dilation of pelvis in the picture is due to malrotation which make all the calyces and the pelvis to be on one line.
