Further, the potential existence of anatomic anomalies, such as malrotated kidney and infundibular stenosis, could make access through a single percutaneous tract challenging.
In the present case, a similar congenital anomaly in the form of the left ectopic (left iliac fossa) and malrotated kidney was present.
Crossed renal ectopy anomaly is two times more common in males and the cross from left to right was more common than the cross from right to left.[sup.6] Nussbaum and colleagues[sup.2] determined the classical visualisation findings of multicystic dysplastic kidney and crossed renal ectopy necessary for the diagnosis: (1) a multicystic mass of variable size that is contiguous with the lower pole of a hydronephrotic, malrotated kidney; (2) ureteral displacement and/or dilatation; and (3) contralateral absence of the kidney and its renal artery.
