TIJERINA DE LA GARZA, Octavio et al. Anatomical Study of the Horseshoe Kidney. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2009, vol.27, n.2, pp.491-494. ISSN 0717-9502.

We present the anatomical study of a horseshoe kidney found during dissection practice at the human anatomy laboratory. The specimen consisted of a renal mass joined at its lower poles by an isthmus composed of renal parenchyma. We provide a macroscopic description of renal blood supply and the excretory system. We also discuss the anatomic and embryologic importance of this anomaly.

Keywords : Horseshoe kidney; Macroscopic description; Anatomic anomaly.
