renohepatopancreatic dysplasia

Wednesday 29 June 2005

Definition: Renohepatopancreatic dysplasia (RHPD) is caracterized by the association of several visceral dysplasia involving the kidney (bilateral non-obstructive multicystic renal dysplasia or BNOMRD) , the liver (ductal plate malformation or DPM; previously congenital hepatic fibrosis) and the pancreas (pancreatic acinar dysplasia or PAD).


- bilateral non-obstructive multicystic renal dysplasia or BNOMRD
- hepatic ductal plate malformation (DPM) (ex-congenital hepatic fibrosis)
- pancreatic acinar dysplasia (PAD)

Etiology (renohepatopancreatic dysplastic syndromes)

- autosomal recessive polycystic kidney diseases (ARPKD)
- Meckel syndrome (MKS)
- Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS)
- RHPD with osseous anomalies (narrow chest, short limbs)
