The term 'S-shaped kidney' typically refers to a variant of crossed-fused ectopia in which the crossed kidney is fused with the lower pole of the orthotopic kidney maintaining its orientation resulting in medially facing upper-pelvis and laterally facing lower-one; no kidney is present in the other renal fossa.
