Acquired cystic disease of the kidney
Acquired cystic disease of the kidney (abbreviated ACDK), also acquired cystic disease, is a benign change of the kidney seen in chronic renal failure.
Acquired renal cystic disease and acquired cystic renal disease redirect here.
- Thought to arise due to uremia, not specific to the type of renal dialysis, i.e. hemodialysis vs. peritoneal dialysis.
- Presence of cysts dependent on duration of dialysis:
- < 3 years ~44%.
- >4 years ~80%.
- >10 years ~90%.
- Associated with renal cell carcinoma - specifically acquired cystic disease-associated renal cell carcinoma.
- Cysts - location: cortex and medulla.
- Lined by simple flattened epithelium.
