Renal Cystic Disease and Vascular Lesions of the Adrenal and Kidney

  • Kelvin K. W. Liu

Multicystic dysplastic kidney (MCDK) is the most common renal cystic disease in neonates. Autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD) is an uncommon condition that can present in utero or early infantile period. Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) and solitary renal cyst are rarely seen in newborns. Localized adrenal haemorrhage may occur in infants but massive haemorrhage is rare and is often confined to newborn. Renal vein thrombosis leading to haemorrhagic infarction has become much less common due to improved perinatal management. Renal artery thrombosis and stenosis are the main causes of renovascular hypertension in neonate
