GUN, Saul et al. Complete renal fusion in a child with recurrent urinary tract infection. Radiol Bras [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.4, pp. 233-234. ISSN 0100-3984. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842012000400011.
Cake kidney, a rare anomaly of the urinary tract, may be diagnosed at any age range. During the investigation of recurrent urinary tract infection in a 12-year-old child, contrast-enhanced computed tomography demonstrated the presence of a right-sided ectopic kidney, with renal fusion, drained by two ureters. Prophylactic treatment with nitrofurantoin was instituted, and the patient currently remains asymptomatic.
