Hydronephrosis (dilatation of renal pelvis) can be physiological or pathological. The more the diameter of renal pelvis the more are chances that it is pathological. Overall almost 50% antenatal hydronephrosis are physiological which resolve on its own over time.
Next Steps
Serial Ultrasounds with measurement of APD of pelvis should be done during pregnancy to monitor the hydronephrosis.
