DURAN ALVAREZ, Sandalio et al. Segmental multicystic renal dysplasia: First cases registered in Cuba. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2009, vol.81, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-3119.
Segmental multicystic renal dysplasia is a rare subtype of renal dysplasia that may be mistake with a total multicystic dysplasia, an obstructed double system or a hydronephrosis by stenosis of pyeloureteral junction. Authors present cases of two girls presenting with this variety of dysplasia. In one of them maternal-fetal US image, and even the first renal US, was confounded with a hydronephrosis. In the other case, US of 22 weeks of pregnancy sowed renal cysts, and in the first renal US before admission in unit, raise suspicion of this variety of dysplasia. We propose the expectant imaging control, without performing exeresis of cystic mass, but we must to be attentive to possible complications, and with informed consent of parents.
