Urinary and Genital Disorders (Children)

Unborn baby with 2 enlarged kidneys

01/09/2009

Question:

My cousin is 24 weeks she got an ultrasound today and the doctor told her that the baby has enlarged kidneys but didn`t really explain what exactly that meant or consequences. Can you please tell me why an unborn baby would have enlarged kidneys and consequences this might bring?
