Abstract

Pelvic kidney is the most common type of renal ectopia. These abnormally positioned kidneys are often clinically asymptomatic. However, they are prone to urinary infection, stone formation and trauma. Admitted patients often complain of lower abdominal pain and urinary infection. Pelvic kidneys may also lead to misdiagnosis when it is associated with hydronephrosis or large cystic structures. Thus, it is rather difficult to pinpoint the origin of the problem. We reported here different clinical presentations of our two patients with pelvic kidneys.
