Pak J Chest Med Jan ;25(4):189-91.
Intra-thoracic kidney is a rare entity with variable presentation ranging from asymptomatic to recurrent chest infections and more common in males. Various modalities can be used to diagnose the condition and its associated structural abnormalities. We hereby present a case of 5 years old child who had chronic cough and intra-thoracic kidney was found in the right chest which was confirmed with CT scan. Radiological knowledge of this rare condition can avoid undue investigations and reduce morbidity to patients.
