Morphology of Human Renal Cystic Disease
This chapter contains a discussion of certain morphologic features of autosomal dominant, adult polycystic kidney disease (APKD) in relation to current theories of pathogenesis. The principal theories are (1) obstruction of tubular lumina by epithelial hyperplasia and (2) increased compliance of tubular walls secondary to an abnormality in the tubular basement membrane.
