CT reveals multiple cysts of varying sizes in the liver, and bilateral kidneys with little remaining normal renal parenchyma. No evidence of hemorrhagic cysts.
This case shows an autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) with extra-renal manifestation (liver).
ADPKD is the most common hereditary renal disease and is commonly associated with polycystic liver disease (75% of patients with ADPKD).
