CAPOTE LEYVA, Eliseo; LOPEZ GONZALEZ, Frank Ernesto  y  NAVARRO GARCIA, Maité. Pelvic Kidneys and Pregnancy. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2016, vol.45, n.4, pp.1-5. ISSN 0138-6557.

Congenital kidney abnormalities can be varied. Within the positional abnormalities, one of the most frequent is the renal ectopia and the most frequent location is in the pelvic cavity (pelvic kidney). We present the case of a patient in her third decade of life who went to a nephrology clinic for nonspecific low back pain. It was decided to perform renal ultrasound, not finding the kidneys in their usual position. After having normal results of a blood chemistry, it is subjected to a downward urogram where the kidneys could be seen in a pelvic position. Few months later this patient returned to a consultation referred by obstetrics for a nine-week desired pregnancy. The main risks are discussed and the patient decided to continue her pregnancy. General recommendations are given to the patient and a close follow-up is the option to follow in order to achieve this pregnancy. The evolution was favorable and now this patient enjoys her motherhood despite having a renal congenital anomaly that is not uncommon and it is often detected by chance. In this case, kidneys shared the pelvic space with a gestation that arrived to a happy ending.

Palabras clave : pelvic kidneys; pregnancy; renal congenital anomalies.
