Polycystic kidney disease is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner in which gradually enlarging renal cysts are associated with progressive renal impairment. It may present with chronic renal failure or be found during screening of relatives of patients with the disease. More unusually it can present with an abdominal mass, with hypertension or with rupture of an associated intra-cranial Berry aneurysm causing a subarachnoid haemorrhage. The renal failure most commonly manifests in middle age and might present with vomiting, nausea, anorexia, itching, fatigue, polyuria, etc. The cysts can bleed producing haem-aturia, become infected or be painful. There is an increased incidence of cardiac disease including valvular abnormalities, herniae and diverticular disease. It has a prevalence of 0.1%.
