Enlarged Kidneys in 18 week old Fetus

My daughter is 18 weeks pregnant and has just had a scan to see the sex of the baby - a boy - they informed my daughter that the baby's kidneys seemed larger than normal, is this any cause for concern and what can the problem be?

The commonest reason is a blockage in the drainage system of the kidneys, but she will need a scan by an expert to see exactly what the problem is.
