Abstract

Renal malrotation is associated with a wide range of congenital anomalies. This report describes an asymptomatic ureteral impingement between the psoas muscle and lower pole of the kidney, a rare type of anomaly found on imaging. Radiologists should always look for these anomalies for early detection and better preoperative planning.
