Wednesday 21 March 2007

Definition: non-syndromic bilateral non-obstructive multicystic renal dysplasia (MRD).


- sporadic non-syndromic cystic renal dysplasia
- familial non-syndromic cystic renal dysplasia


- renal anomalies

  • numerous variable size renal cysts
  • renal cysts lined by columnar or cuboidal epithelium
  • connective tissue without foci of cartilage
  • immature conjonctive tissue
  • few glomeruli and some nephrogenic tissue scattered among various sized cysts

- oligohydramnios sequence (OHAS) (Potter sequence)


- partial trisomy resulting from parental unbalanced translocation
