Hydronephrosis in a newborn is typically asymptomatic. It is one of the most common and usually benign anomalies detected on ultrasonography, with only a minority causing significant problem requiring urgent intervention, we present a neonate with giant congenital hydronephrosis presenting with feed intolerance due to duodenal obstruction. The baby was successfully managed at our centre and discharged on full feeds.
