Polycystic Kidney Disease

PKD TYPES & CAUSES SYMPTOMS DIAGNOSIS TREATMENT

Polycystic Kidney Disease is the most common genetic, life threatening disease characterized by the growth of numerous fluid-filled cysts in the kidneys.
These cysts grow and multiply over time, slowly replace much of the mass of the kidneys. Ultimately, the diseased kidney shuts down causing end-stage renal disease for which dialysis and transplantation are the only forms of treatment. 

Polycystic Disease can cause cysts to develop in your liver, pancreas, membranes that surround your brain and central nervous system, and seminal vesicles. If PKD affects the brain, it can cause an aneurysm (a bulging blood vessel that can rupture).
