Anyone know why this was Hydronephrosis and not Staghorn Calculus??
hchairstonThere are no calculi in the image. The image shows a dilated ureter, you know it's a ureter because there is an opening into the hilum of the kidney.+22020-05-20T16:10:39Z
prosopagnosiaPersonally, I couldn't tell that the ureter was dilated without a comparison image. But what I did notice was the dilation of the renal calyces and severe renal atrophy which clued me into some ureteric obstruction --> Hydronephrosis. +12020-06-07T03:57:20Z
trazoboneOK so I put ARPKD bc of chronic renal insufficiency and also i thought the dilated parts were cysts +22020-07-04T01:50:42Z
shieldmaidenRemember that for ARPKD both kidneys will be affected and it will involve the cortex as well as the medulla. If you notice, the cortex is intact+22020-07-06T21:54:49Z
