The left kidney is absent. The right kidney is a multicytstic mass with a blood supply from the aorta
and without a ureter. The adrenal glands are discoid rather than globular in outline as one would
expect with displacement of one kidney and the absence of the second.
The baby was delivered prematurely as a breech at an estimated gestational age of 33 weeks.
Oliohydramnios was noted. The child survived approximately 30 hours, was aneuric and in respiratory
failure. At autopsy there was evidence in addition to the present findings, of pulmonary hypoplasia.
