Congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract describe a variety of disorders that, as a group, are among the most common congenital abnormalities observed in children. It is estimated that these anomalies impact approximately 1 in 500 children. They are of great clinical importance as they represent the most common causes of renal failure in children. Pediatric surgeons should have a good basic understanding of the common renal abnormalities seen in children.
