Longitudinal section through a Polycystic Kidney 3D Model
Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is an autosomal genetic disorder that cause renal damage and sometimes results in premature death in children and adults. In PKD numerous fluid filled cysts grow in the kidney. These cysts get bigger and can replace much of the kidney, thereby reducing kidney function and leading to kidney faliure.
