Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease with liver and pancreatic involvement in early childhood

Am J Kidney Dis. 1989 Apr;13(4):340-4. doi: 10.1016/s0272-6386(89)80043-5.


In a patient with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, liver and kidney cysts were found by biopsy at the age of 8 months. Computed tomography at the age of 16 years confirmed the presence of liver and kidney cysts and also revealed pancreatic cysts. Such early onset of liver cysts in a patient with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease has not been reported previously.
