Neonatal renal vein thrombosis (RVT) is a well-described entity which is traditionally associated with a variety of perinatal stresses. Prenatal RVT is much less commonly detected. We describe a case in which a screening obstetrical ultrasonogram detected a fetal renal abnormality which was incorrectly interpreted as a suspected neoplasm of the fetal kidney. Ultrasonographic examinations during the first week of life confirmed the diagnosis of RVT, and both grayscale and Doppler techniques were used to follow the resolution of the thrombosis and the fate of the kidney.
