HUMAN PHENOTYPE - ANNOTATIONS

The Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) is downloaded weekly from http://compbio.charite.de/hudson/job/hpo/lastStableBuild/artifact/ontology/release/hp.obo. The file downloaded is considered the "last stable build" available for the ontology. For more about the HPO, view their website at http://www.human-phenotype-ontology.org/.

Definition:Mild pyelectasis is defined as a hypoechoic spherical or elliptical space within the renal pelvis that measures at least 5mm and not more than 10 mm. The measurement is taken on a transverse section through the fetal renal pelvis using the maximum anterior-to-posterior measurement.
Comment:The renal pelvis is the part of the kidney that collects urine. Fetal pyelectasis is a prenatal ultrasound finding that is diagnosed with enlargement of the renal pelvis from 4 to 10 millimeters. In many cases, fetal pyelectasis resolves spontaneously. Note that dilatation of the renal pelvis to more than 10 mm is referred to as severe pyelectasis or hydronephrosis. Measurements less than 5mm are normal, should not be designated as pyelectasis, and should not be reported (PMID:16100637).
