Author(s): Dr. Santosh Patil, Dr. Abishai Jebaraj, Dr. Vinay S Kundargi and Dr. Basavesh S Patil
Abstract: Crossed Fused Renal Ectopia is a very rare anomaly of the kidneys with a prevalence of 1 in 1000 live births. It is usually asymptomatic and goes undetected in most patients or is usually picked up incidentally when being evaluated for abdomen pain or other pathologies or during autopsy. Here we report a case of acute pyelonephritis with obstructive uropathy in a crossed left fused renal ectopia, which was diagnosed with computed tomography (CT) in a patient who presented with abdomen pain and how he was managed successfully with DJ stenting.
