Answer: Hi dear, The concern you mentioned is called hydronephrosis.there would be blockage in the urinary tract of baby.This blockage may cause urine to back up into the kidney, a condition called hydronephrosis, which causes the kidney to appear enlarged on the ultrasound test. many kidney or urinary tract abnormalities detected before birth have no major impact on the overall health of the baby following delivery. Nevertheless, certain conditions may interfere with the baby's kidney function or growth after birth. your doctor would discuss with you regarding that.
