Medial renal ptosis: First radiographic documentation with computed tomography

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Tue, 02/05/2019 - 00:00
Medial renal ptosis is the abnormal mobility of the kidney towards or across the midline of the body. Historically, this phenomenon is evaluated by observing abnormal mobility in the lateral decubitus position during intravenous pyelography. Here, we present the first radiographic documentation of this anomaly on computed tomography on a 34-year-old female who experienced an intermittent abdominal bulge over her right upper quadrant. Nephropexy is the definitive treatment for symptomatic patients.
