Abstract

A case of bilateral multicystic dysplastic kidneys with multiple anomalies is reported. Prenatal ultrasonography showed oligohydramnios, atrial septal defect, bilateral multicystic kidneys, omphalocele, and bowel dilatation. A male baby died of respiratory insufficiency immediately after premature delivery. Autopsy showed multiple anomalies of face, fingers, lung, heart, bowels, and genitourinary tract. Seven more cases with urinary tract anomalies prenatally detected by ultrasonography are also reported. Ultrasonography is useful to diagnose anomalies of fetus.
