Abstract

The diagnosis of horseshoe kidney often was missed on preoperative imaging. Accurate preoperative diagnosis is important in planning the operative approach and may help to decrease complications related to transection of the urinary collecting system. Although 37% of patients with Wilms tumor arising in a horseshoe kidney were judged inoperable at initial exploration, all were amenable to resection after chemotherapy.
