  • MCKD vs PKD?

    What is the difference between PKD and MCKD? Cysts both simple and complex inside and out side both kidneys. Recently dx with IgAN via kidney biopsy, not sure if it is relevant.
    Thank you in advance for any information you can share.

      Medullary cystic kidney disease is an autosomal dominant kidney disorder characterized by cysts in both kidneys and tubulointerstitial sclerosis leading to end-stage renal disease. The kidney disease nephronophthisis is in the classification of this disorder.
