Does anyone have any experience with ectopic kidneys?

Just completed an ultrasound and found out that my baby has her right kidney much lower than normal. It IS functioning normally and I shouldn't have too much to worry about, but was wondering if anyone else had children born with this.

Hi I was just trawling the internet to find out some more info about this condition and found your post. I see that it's from a few years ago now and that no one replied. I'm now going to be the one to ask for advice from you... My daughter who will be 2 in May has a right pelvic kidney which was picked up on my 20 week scan. Since she was born she has had 1 ultrasound which showed what looked like a normal working right pelvic kidney, since then we have basically been told to go away and have her blood pressure taken from about the age of 5. I feel like I want to find out more information as I'm worried about possible future complications. How has your little girl got on? Is she ok ? I hope she is doing well. If you have any tips about what to ask doctors etc, that would be great. Thanks Marie (uk)
