Pelviectasis -: Pelviectasis is mild dilatation of the area where the ureter meets the kidney. It can be associated with an obstructed uropathy. Pelviectasis found in children under 1 yr of age (usually during UTI work-up), has a significant rate of spontaneous resolution - which means nothing will need to be done - just monitor. If there is an obstructed uropathy then urologic surgery may be needed.
