The absence of one or both kidneys in a baby is known as Renal Agenesis. This condition can also cause defects or abnormal functioning of other organs and systems such as the digestive, cardiac and respiratory systems. Babies with BRA or both kidneys missing would have limb defects, ears that are set low and widely separated eyes. The symptoms of a single missing kidney might not be visible till later life and would include high blood pressure and developmental defects especially of the inner ear and head.
HOW IS RENAL AGENESIS DIAGNOSED?
Renal agenesis is typically diagnosed during routine prenatal ultrasounds. When BRA is identified, prenatal MRI can be used to confirm the complete absence of both kidneys.
HOW IS RENAL AGENESIS TREATED?
Treatment for Renal Agenesis includes dialysis in the initial stages depending on the severity of the condition. However, once they are older, kidney transplant is done.
DID YOU KNOW?
This condition is extremely rare and occurs in less than one percent of births annually in the United States.
