What Are the Causes of Enlarged Kidney in Children

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2013-04-10 09:11

What Are the Causes of Enlarged Kidney in ChildrenMy son is 10 years old and he always has urinary tract infections. After an ultrasound, the results show that one of his kidneys is enlarged. I will visit a nephrologist days later. But I am curious what are the possible causes of enlarged kidney in children.

There is a lot of different diseases in children that can cause enlarged kidney. One of the most common is reflux. This is where the valve from the kidney to the ureter is deformed and propels urine back into the kidney from their kidneys causing enlarged kidney. If this condition is not reversed, it can cause extensive damage. If enlarged kidney is associated with reflux, surgery is often used to treat the condition.

Additionally, many children can have cysts in their kidneys. With age, the cysts can grow persistently, resulting in enlarged kidney. If the cysts keep enlarging further, they will compress the adjacent kidney tissues and cells, eventually leading to renal failure. Therefore, if enlarged kidney is related to large cysts, the treatment goal should be stopping the cysts from enlarging and shrinking the large cysts.( If you are interested in the natural treatment for Kidney Cyst, please contact us on line).

Acute pyelonephritis is another cause of enlarged kidney in children. It can be caused by a urinary tract infection or by infection in the bloodstream. Also, kidney stones or an enlarged prostate and other obstruction can increase the risk of developing pyelonephritis.

The above are the common causes of enlarged kidney in children. You should firstly figure out the cause of your son’s condition and then seek for relative treatment to control the condition.If you are not clear about the causes of your child's condition, please consult us on line to get free professional advices or email to kidneyabc@hotmail.com.
