ABSTRACT: A 20 month-old male child presented with repeated episodes of upper respiratory tract infection and mild scoliosis with convexity on the right side. Chest x-ray showed multiple hemivertebrae and a posterior mediastinal mass and contrast enhanced CT scan showed the mass to be of a functioning thoracic kidney. A thoracic kidney with skeletal anomalies poses a diagnostic challenge to clinicians when detected incidentally on plain roentgenography and should be differented from esophageal duplication or neurenteric cyst.
