Horse shoe kidney is by birth disorder in which lower end of both kidneys are fused together , this condition occurs 1 in 400 individuals , most of the cases of Horse shoe kidneys are asymptomatic and have no life long consequences , in some cases , it can present with kidney stones , infections and obstruction .

So if kid develops any nausea , vomiting abdominal pain at any time this should be evaluated otherwise no specific management needed .
