Excerpt from The Medical News, Vol. 81: A Weekly Journal of Medical Science; Saturday, October-December 1902 We define a movable kidney as a displaced, and not fixed kidney, whose movements are sub peritoneal; and a floating kidney as one which moves intra-abdominally, being surrounded by peritoneum, forming a mesonephron. To both classes we assign the general name wandering kidney, as it is not possible to diagnose between the two conditions without operation. It is not recorded as verified by operation that a floating kidney one with a mesonephron) existed in any of our cases.
