Polycystic Kidney Disease Report


Polycystic Kidney Disease

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is the main genetic cause of adult kidney failure and is characterised by the formation of fluid-filled cysts in the kidneys. Other symptoms include high blood pressure, abdominal pain, frequent urination and blood in the urine. The disease can degenerate due to the progressive enlargement of kidney cysts and the formation of cysts and vascular changes in other organs. PKD is transmitted in two forms, autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive, depending on whether the genetic alteration is inherited from one or both parents. The age of onset differs according to the form of PKD inherited.
