Discussion of Cake kidney
- Cake kidney is AKA fused pelvic kidney and lump kidney.
- Cake kidney is a rare anomaly consisting of all renal tissue fused into one mass, lying in the pelvis, and giving rise to two separate ureters which enter the bladder in normal relationship.
- An even more rare variant is when the cake kidney is drained by a single ureter (has been previously reported in only four patients).
- Cake kidney malformation is not necessarily associated with renal dysfunction but does require exclusion of concomitant anomalies, long-term follow-up for early detection of possible future complications such as obstruction, infection, or calculi.
