Hypertension has been reported to occur in 50 to 75 percent of subjects with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) prior to the onset of marked renal insufficiency but concurrent with cystic deformation of the renal parenchyma. The present study was undertaken to examine whether the renal structural abnormalities are greater in hypertensive (HBP) versus normotensive (NBF) male and female patients with ADPKD who were matched within gender groups for age, body surface area, serum creatinine concentration (males HBP 1.2 ± 0.02 vs. NBP 1.1 ± 0.03 mg/dl, NS; females HBP 0.9 ± 0.03 vs. NBP 0.9 ± 0.02 mg/dl, NS) and creatinine clearance (males HBP 100 ± 3 vs. NBP 108 ± 3 ml/min/l.73 m², NS; females HBF 97 ± 3 vs. NBP 96 ± 2 ml/min/1.73 m², NS). Renal volume was significantly greater in the HBP compared to the NBP group (males HBP 624 ± 47 vs. NBP 390 ± 43 cm³, P < 0.0005; females HBP 466 ± 32 vs. NBP 338 ± 24 cm³, P < 0.002). Since increased renal volume is due to increased cysts, the results indicate that the early high incidence of hypertension in ADPKD correlates with the renal structural abnormalities in this disorder.

    Polycystic kidney diseases (PKDs) are primarily characterized by the growth of fluid-filled cysts in renal tubules leading to end-stage renal disease. Mutations in the PKD1 or PKD2 genes lead to autosomal dominant PKD (ADPKD), a slowly developing adult form. Autosomal recessive polycystic kidney...

    Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease is a multiorganic hereditary disorder. It is responsible for 7-10% of cases of end stage renal failure. It is caused by mutations in the genes PKD1 and PKD2. Both polycystic kidney disease's forms have a pathogeny and similar clinic, but in the...
