Multicystic renal dysplasia is an extremely uncommon cause of hypertension in children. Ipsilateral duplication anomalies associated with multicystic kidney have rarely been reported. Hypertension associated with multicystic kidney has been reported previously in a few cases but on Medline search no report was found where hypertension was associated with segmental multicystic dysplasia in a duplicated system. We report a one-year-old girl in whom hypertension was associated with left partial duplicated system and lower moiety multicystic dysplasia. After lower pole heminephrectomy the hypertension resolved and remained so at six months follow-up. In our knowledge this is the first report of its type.
