Urinary and Genital Disorders (Children)

Urine backed up in kidneys, fetal ultrasound

07/14/2008

Question:

We had our twenty-week anatomy scan of our baby yesterday and they said that the kidneys showed there was some urine backed up. They said it was not uncommon to see this and that most of time it corrects itself. They are going to repeat the ultrasound in four weeks. Is it something to worry about?
