The paper presents the state of pyelocaliceal and ureteral dilatation of a mother and her fetus. It describes morphological and anatomic changes in the urinary tract of pregnant women. Much attention is given to dilatation of the maternal and fetal renal collecting system. The paper reflects the importance of targeted scanning of the fetal kidney throughout pregnancy; it shows association of pyeloectasia with aneuploidy, particularly trisomy 21 and renal pathology, as confirmed in postnatal period, and the relationship between fetal pyeloectasia and maternal pyelocaliceal dilatation; and demonstrates the importance of ultrasound screening.
