Case report 

Following 2D and color Doppler images show a case of 33-year-old woman (G3P2), who was sent to our unit due to a suspicion of duplex kidney. Our ultrasound exam was done at 35 weeks of pregnancy and confirmed the diagnosis.



Duplex kidney called also duplication of the renal collecting system is a condition in which a kidney is divided into separate upper and lower pole, each drained by a ureter. Obstruction of the upper moiety suggests an abnormal implantation of its ureter.
