Autosomal polycystic kidney disease or ADPKD as the name suggests is a genetic disorder that is transferred from parents to the child and is manifested as a number of cysts growing the kidneys. It is an inherited disorder where the numerous small cystic sacs develop filled with cysts in the kidneys. Children who are born with these cysts do not tend to have any signs or symptoms until the cysts become large enough to hamper the functions of the kidneys. The severity of complaints may vary from person to person, however, the onset of signs and symptoms occur between the age of 30-40 years. It is known to be the most common inherited disorder of the kidneys.
