  The inheritance and harm of polycystic kidney disease

  1. Heredity:

  The polycystic kidney disease is a genetic kidney disorder. When the patients have this disease, they will scare that the disease can be passed on to their children, and the family is afraid to have this disease gene.

  Polycystic kidney has familial aggregation. If one side of parents suffer from the disease, the child's genetic probability can be to 50%; Both parents have this disease, the genetic probability will increase to 75%. Most of the lesions had been present in the fetal period, the whole kidney can be with different levels and sizes of the cyst, the small is like a grain, the big can reach to few centimeters. Those cysts will grow with age, the increased cysts will oppress the kidneys, which can damage the structure of the kidney and cause the occurrence of fibrosis. With the aggravation of the kidney damage, it can not maintain the normal life, and thus the advanced renal failure emerged.

  2. Growth:

  With age increases, the number and size of the kidney cysts are gradually increasing and changing.

  3. Complications:

  Cystic changes in polycystic kidney disease are not only confined to the kidneys, but also relate to the liver, pancreas, spleen, ovary and other organs. Therefore, the polycystic kidney disease is not only the main cause for renal failure, but also a systemic disease.
