Renal atrophy is a kidney disorder where the kidneys are relatively small in comparison to the gender, age and body weight of the patient. Congenital Renal Atrophy can also be known as Renal Hypoplasia, which can be described as Congenitally small kidneys with a reduced number of nephrons but normal architecture. Most children born with Unilateral Renal Hypoplasia have no complications and do not need special treatment, but if both kidneys are affected, the condition can be lethal. Renal atrophy is closely associated to deterioration of renal functions and can lead to kidney failure. Symptoms include frequent and painful urination, blood in the urine, back pain, and high blood pressure. Early detection and timely treatment to control or improve the atrophic kidneys is very important so as to prevent further deterioration of kidney damage. Treatment options are dialysis or kidney transplant.
