Crossed Fused Left Renal Ectopia- A Rare Anomaly
Vasudha Nikam | Arun Karmalkar | Shailesh Srivastava
Abstract: Crossed renal ectopia occurs when the kidney is located on the opposite side. It is the second most common fusion anomalies after horseshoe kidney. Ectopic kidney occurs as a result of a halt in migration to their normal location, during embryonic period. Here we present a case of fused right renal ectopia which was found during routine dissection in 59 years old male cadaver, where the right kidney was horizontal and fused to lower pole of left kidney. Proper knowledge of morphological variations of kidney along with its vasculature is necessary for anatomist as well as for urologist who will help to diagnose the renal anomalies and transplantation surgery.
