Horseshoe kidneys is a congenital condition of the kidneys which produces a characteristic IVP picture where the upper poles are further from the midline than the lower poles.
This congenital abnormality may result in hydronephrosis due to PUJ obstruction.
Pyeloplasty is the treatment for PUJ obstruction.
Sometimes a horseshoe kidney may cause problems during pregnancy.
