The etiology and pathogenesis of oligomeganephronic renal hypoplasia (OMN) are not known. In the present paper a second case of monozygotic twins non-concordant for OMN is described. It is hypothesized that one of the mechanisms which have been proposed to explain structural defects in monozygotic twins, namely placental artery-vein shunting, may have been involved in the pathogenesis of OMN in these patients. In OMN in general vascular abnormalities may have to be considered as a pathogenetic mechanism.
