my unborn nephew had an enlarged right kidney shown on an ultrasound at about 18 wks gestation. then at about 25 weeks getstation there was nothing on the ultrasound. now yesterday at about 31 weeks gestation, my sister went for another ultrasound and they saw 8 cysts on his right kidney. the doc really didn't give my sister any information other than a piece of paper with the words "polycystic multi dysplastic kidney." i'm not understanding this because everything i've found so far is either called polycystic kidney disease or multicystic dysplastic kidney (which i believe is the same as hydronephrosis). can anyone add any info on this here for me?
