Abstract

In this paper, we present a case of traumatic sectioning of the isthmus in a patient with multiple injuries, suffering from a horse-shoe-shaped kidney, which is extremely rare, according to the review of the literature which we have carried out. In view of the scanty incidence of kidney fusions and the difficulty sometimes involved in classifying them and in their surgical treatment, we shortly comment on the consequences which traumatisms may have on this kind of kidney malformation.
