Multicystic kidney is one of the most frequently encoun­tered masses in the newborns, ranking either first or sec­ond in occurrence. Totally 15 cases were managed over the last 5 years. The most common age of presentation was within first month of life, the affliction occurring more on the left side. Commonest mode of presentation was ab­dominal mass. Ultrasonography was the diagnostic inves­tigation of choice. Five cases were diagnosed antenatally. Associated anomalies were found in 8 cases with anovesti­bular fistula, PUJO in contralateral kidney, right con­genital lumbar hernia and oesophageal atresia with TOE. Nephrectomy was the surgical treatment performed along with appropriate management of the associated anoma­lies.
