Cystic Diseases of the Kidney

  • Michael P. Solliday
  • Kenneth I. Glassberg
Part of the Atlas of Clinical Urology book series (ACU)


This chapter is divided between genetic and nongenetic entities, and each subtype is discussed individually. There is a brief description of etiology, clinical features, histopathology, radiologic characteristics, and management possibilities for each cystic disease.
