The finding of hyperechogenic fetal kidneys is a problem of a great medical concern and of family anxiety, because of almost always it expresses an important renal disease. When hyper-echogenicity is accompanied by oligohydramnios, usually we are facing a polycystic disease; where there are not oligohydramnios the potential diagnosis is difficult. The objective of present paper is the presentation of a child presenting with recessive autosomal polycystic disease. En examinations performed in the mother during pregnancy, it was found a renal hyperechogeny and oligohydramnios. The clinical evolution, ultrasonography and scintigraphy of its disease is described and a brief review of literature in relation to thus subject is reviewed.

Keywords : hyperechogenic kidney; oligohydramnios; polycystic renal disease.
