Crossed ectopic kidney with or without fusion

When the kidney is located in the opposite renal fossa, it is called renal cross ectopic. More than 90% of the crossed ectopic kidney fused with its contralateral normal kidney, and the most common was horseshoe kidney malformation. The concept of fused renal abnormality was first proposed by Wilmer in 1938 and extended by McDonald in 1957, including renal cross ectopic with fusion or cross ectopic without fusion. The main types of fused kidney are as follows: ① fused kidney with inferior ectopic; ② C-shaped or S-shaped fused kidney; ③ Massive or cake shaped fused kidney; ④ L-shaped fused kidney; ⑤ Round fused kidney; ⑥ Fused kidney with cephalic ectopia.
