Abstract
Congenital thoracic kidney is a rare congenital malformation, caused by renal malpositioning during embryogenesis or congenital diaphregmatic hernia with herniation of kidney. Prenatal diagnosis of congenital thoracic kidney has been only rarely reported, underlying congenital diaphragmatic hernia should always be suspected in cases of congenital thoracic kidney. We present a case in which the prenatal diagnosis of an ectopic intrathoracic kidney was made on routine anatomical survey at 29 weeks' gestation.
Key Words: Fetal ultasound, Intrathoracic kidney, Prenatal diagnosis
