Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney, i.e. normal renal tissue, is replaced by numerous small cysts, which look like a bunch of grapes, and sometimes there is island like normal tissue between the cysts. The disease is divided into four types: autosomal recessive polycystic kidney; Renal dysplasia; Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney; Urethral obstruction polycystic kidney. Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney, also known as adult polycystic kidney (ADPKD), is mainly described in this chapter. The incidence rate is about 1/1000, and its penetrance is almost complete. This makes all carriers who live to be over 80 years old show certain signs of this disease. About 5% ~ 10% of end-stage renal failure is caused by autosomal dominant polycystic kidney (ADPKD).
