Abstract

Multicystic kidney disease is the most common cause of neonatal renal mass and either the most or second most common neonatal abdominal mass. This disease is a congenital dysplasia of the kidney characterized by large nonhomogeneous dilations of the collecting tubules. It may occur unilaterally or bilaterally, and the incidence is about 1 out of 5,000 to 10,000 births. Severe bilateral defects are lethal. Partial dysplastic involvement of both kidneys eventually leads to renal function impairment. This is a case of bilateral multicystic kidney dysplasia diagnosed prenatally at 34 weeks of gestation. Hyaline membrane disease was found in both lungs after delivery. The antenatal diagnostic criteria for multicystic kidney disease and treatment after diagnosis are also discussed.
