Development of the human fetal kidney runs through a series of continual and mutually dependent changes during which the kidney obtains its morphological and functional maturity .The aim of this study is to show highest level of positive correlation between some antropometrical parameters of the fetal kidney with gestational age .This study included a simple of 136 fetuses from normal pregnancies (68 males and 68 females ). Fetuses with malformations were excluded from the study.All parameters are statistically processed and graphicallyshown.The study included a simple of 136 fetuses of both sexes the correlation of the length ,width and volume of ( left / rlight) kidney in ( male / female) fetuses with gestational age was monitored and kidneys were grouped in several categories and analyzed. Greater congenital anomalies of kidney for example, infantile polycystic kidney disease , could be found by prenatal US measuring of the kidney dimensions. Measuring the fetal kidney size can also help in determing the gestational age .In our study , there was no significand difference in kidney dimensions between male and female fetuses (p>0.05). Keywords : fetus , kidney, anatomy.
