Nephrologist 's  Response
Thanks for the query.
If your wife has evidence of blood in the urine we need to see the urine microscopy to look for white cells or casts. We also need to need to know whether there is evidence of protein in urine. If any of these are present she needs to see a nephrologist.
A malrotated kidney is harmless and should not be the cause of blood in urine.
Hope this helps
Good luck.

Welcome to HCM.
It is a developmental abnormality and needs no treatment unless there are stones or hydronephrosis.
Best regards
