Predictive factors of ultrasonographic involution of prenatally detected multicystic dysplastic kidney

There is an increasing incidence of diagnosis of many conditions, such as MCDK,
by antenatal US, and it is therefore important to understand the natural history of
such conditions. This study has shown similar rates of complete involution of
MCDK to those reported previously, although at a slower rate. The only factor
apparently predictive of involution was length at diagnosis, but this finding needs to
be reproduced in larger studies if it is going to be used to counsel parents more
effectively.
