Urology. 1976 Jul;8(1):5-8. doi: 10.1016/0090-4295(76)90042-x.


Renal cystic disorders have long represented an area of diagnostic confusion. We have attempted to correlate renal microdissection findings with clinically established renal cystic disorders by examining each disorder in sequential fashion. The clinical presentation of a child with a multicystic kidney is followed by a review of the cystic diseases with emphasis on clinical presentation, distinguishing factors, course, and prognosis.
