Renal Fusion (or) Super Kidney

Horseshoe kidney, also called renal fusion, is a condition that starts before a child is born. As a baby develops in the womb, kidneys move into position just above the waist one on each side of the body. But sometimes that doesn't happen as it should .Instead, the kidneys fuse together at their base, forming a U or horseshoe shape. It usually happens between weeks 7 and 9 of the pregnancy. The condition isn’t common about 1 in 500 babies have it, boys more often than girls. And many kids won’t have serious health issues because of it.
