Resumen

PANOZO BORDA, Sindy Vanessa et al. Imaging study autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, report of a case and review of the literature. Gac Med Bol [online]. 2012, vol.35, n.1, pp.31-34. ISSN 1012-2966.

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (PRAD) is a multisystem hereditary disease characterized by the progressive growth and development of renal cysts that destroy functional parenchyma. Renal cystic disease is the most common genetic form transmitted and causes of chronic renal failure (CRF) which sometimes requires renal replacement therapy. We describe an adult patient with polycystic liver PRAD associated with the parent who has a history of PRAD, was diagnosed eight years ago by ultrasonography, underwent the follow-up. Today started presenting impaired renal function, but preserved liver function. There are very few cases reported in our area, despite being a relatively common condition. It is decided to review focuses on imaging diagnosis, making clear the usefulness of ultrasonography in the diagnosis of polycystic kidney disease, since it is the method of choice for imaging additionally allows us to monitor the case and confirm or rule out the frequent association of polycystic in another organ (mainly liver).
