enlarge kidneys

My grandson (5 months)has enlarge kidneys. What does it mean and will he have a normal life

Expert's Reply

A.

Paediatrician

The usual cause is due to an obstruction of the tubes [ureters]which lead from the kidneys to the bladder or a problem with these tubes where they enter the bladder. I hope that your baby grandson is being seen and has been investigated by his paediatrician.
