The kidney growth in children is not linear. The aim of this study was to define normal dimensions of kidneys in
healthy infants during the first six months of life. A prospective ultrasonographic screening of 1870 kidneys in 935
healthy full-termed infants (476 males, 459 females) was done throughout a 5-year period. Measured kidneys were divided
into six age groups according to gender and side. In the first three months of life males had both kidneys longer
than same-age females (p<0.05). In the next three-month-period the difference between sexes was not significant (p>0.05).
Left kidneys were longer than right kidneys in both sexes in the first six months of life (p<0.01). Four nomograms with
normal values of kidney lengths, according to age, sex and side were done in newborns and infants in the first 6-months
of life.
