Lt puj obstruction but the calyces are not dil?
Needs pyeloplasty but we need to check no stone
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.
