What is Pediatric Duplex Kidney?

In a normal urinary system, each of a child’s kidneys is connected to a single ureter (tube that drains urine into the bladder). In a child with a duplex kidney, two ureters are coming from a single kidney. Duplex kidneys can occur in only one or both kidneys. Duplex kidneys – also known as a duplicated collecting system – are a fairly common condition in healthy children, and usually do not require treatment.
