What is Polycystic Kidney Disease?

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a genetic disorder that causes cysts to form in the kidneys. These cysts can grow quite large and interfere with the normal functioning of the kidneys, leading to a range of symptoms and complications. There are two main types of PKD. The most common form is autosomal dominant PKD (ADPKD), and autosomal recessive PKD (ARPKD), which is much less common.

Since PKD is a genetic disorder, it is typically inherited from one or both parents. Symptoms of PKD include pain in the back or sides, headaches, high blood pressure, bloody urine and more. Treatment for PKD typically focuses on managing the symptoms and slowing the progression of the disease. Medications such as ACE inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) may be used to control high blood pressure, and pain medications may be prescribed to manage discomfort. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to drain cysts or remove damaged tissue from the kidneys.
