Abstract

Congenital urinary malformations associated with congenital heart disease are very rare. We present a case of horseshoe and supernumerary kidney associated with coarctation of aorta diagnosed by a combination of techniques of teleradiography, aortography, intravenous pyelography; ultrasonography, magnetic resonance imaging, and Dimercapto Succinic Acid (DMSA) and Diethylene Triamine Pentacetate (DTPA) imaging. This case represents the first reported instance of horseshoe and supernumerary kidney associated with coarctation of aorta.
