Horseshoe kidney is the most common fusion anomaly of the kidney with a prevalence of 1/400, being more frequent in males. This anomaly is characterized by malrotation, abnormal blood supply and other anatomic anomalies and has a propensity to form UPJ obstruction in up to one-third of the cases, being more common on the left side (89% of the cases). UPJ obstruction on the right side, being so rare, we report the case of a 5 years and 6 months old male patient suffering of horseshoe kidney and right side UPJ obstruction.
