Renal Agenesis, Dysplasia, Hypoplasia, and Cystic Diseases of the Kidney

Renal malformations represent the most common manifestation of congenital diseases in childhood. Renal agenesis, dysplasia, hypoplasia, and cystic renal diseases are such entities. Causes vary: some malformations derive from the complex renal organogenesis, others have genetic and inherited causes. Furthermore, an acquired disease can be present. Knowledge of the individual etiology helps to understand the disease process, affects further diagnostic and therapeutic management, and helps to properly evaluate the prognosis for these patients and their families.
