Fetal renal pyelectasis or even hydronephrosis is nothing to worry about, provided the amniotic fluid is monitored and remains normal. The neonatology team should be notified at birth to institute appropriate follow-up for the newborn; monthly ultrasounds are needed.
Hormonal effect. Mild dilatation of kidneys is often the effect of maternal Progesterone on the baby. If the amniotic fluid is normal chances are that there's no significant disease affecting the fetus. Careful observation and follow up ultrasound is indicate in consultation with the OB team.
