A duplex moiety is a duplication of parts of the kidney. This occurs when the fusion of the kidney does not occur properly during embryo growth.
You need to talk to a Doctor to see if it is causing you any problems. Generally, treatment is not needed if the duplication is not causing you any symptoms. Hope this helps you.
All the best.
