Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To report a case of erythrocytosis in a patient with a hydronephrotic horseshoe kidney and normal erythropoietin values.

METHODS/RESULTS:

A hydronephrotic horseshoe kidney was discovered during evaluation to determine the etiology of the erythrocytosis in a 23-year-old male with normal erythropietin values. Blood parameters returned to normal following heminephrectomy. The hydronephrosis had been caused by stenois of the pyeloureteric junction.

CONCLUSIONS:

Although erythropoietin values may be normal, hydronephrosis can cause secondary erythrocytosis.
