In this 5-year review of 778 neonatal renal scans seen in an obstetric hospital, Mercy Hospital for Women, Melbourne, most infants were referred because of antenatal ultrasound findings. Ninety-two percent of these had fetal pyelectasis. The results were classified on the ultrasound findings. The majority of neonates (76%) had a normal postnatal scan. A number had vesicoureteric reflux found on micturating cystourethrogram. Persisting mild/moderate pyelectasis or hydronephrosis (15%) proved to be a normal variant in many infants, but had a similar appearance to those with an early obstructive cause (1%). There were 59 infants (8%) with a miscellaneous group of renal anomalies, many with a characteristic antenatal ultrasound appearance suggesting the diagnosis. Review of these 59 infants illustrates the anomalies seen and reports the associated investigations and subsequent outcome in most cases.
