Familial medullary sponge kidney in association with congenital absence of teeth (anodontia)

Nephron. 1988;48(3):231-3. doi: 10.1159/000184918.

Abstract

Medullary sponge kidney was found in association with congenital absence of teeth (anodontia) in 3 siblings of a single family. Anodontia occurs in the rare familial syndrome of ectodermal dysplasia, but its association with a renal (mesodermal) anomaly is not known. The present report lends further support to a possible hereditary etiology for medullary sponge kidney.
