Multicystic Dysplastic Kidney is one of the most common renal diseases presented with abdominal mass in the pediatric age group. The natural course of the disease is full or partial involution starting in the early stages of the fetal period and progressing through the postnatal period. In symptomatic cases, ultrasonography is the primary diagnostic method. Today, conservative treatment is preferred instead of surgery. Surgical treatment is preferred in selected cases or cases with recurrent urinary tract infections, hypertension, and suspected malignancy. In this study, we presented a one-year-old girl case with a multicystic dysplastic kidney, complicated by recurrent urinary tract infection and undergoing nephrectomy.
