Treatments for Horseshoe Kidney in Children

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

There is no known cure for a horseshoe kidney, but if your child has complications, her symptoms will be treated. Treatment approaches may include:

  • antibiotics (to treat an underlying infection)
  • surgical intervention (for symptomatic kidney stones)

If your child has no symptoms, she may not need to be treated.

If your child has hydronephrosis, your doctor may want to discuss several other non-surgical or surgical treatment options.
