Other significant medical problems in 5 of the 8 children (63%Z) included VACTERL association, congenital heart diseaise and other genitourinary malformations. Unlike some children with unilateral multicystic dysplasia kidney, this subgroup of children ahs an increased risk of infection. The must be correctly identified on imaging so that tailored clinical management decisions can be made and associated anomalies detected
