Displastic Kidney

Katie - February 3

They have figured out that my son has an multicystic displastic kidney. (cysts on his right kidney but left one is clear) It can be hereditary but in some cases it can just happen. In this case it just happened because there are no signs of it in either family. Has anyone else heard of this or know about it or been through it. So far we are waiting for him to be born to see if he will keep it or if they will remove it. Any advice would be very helpful and appreciated. Thanks

To rikki does this run in your family? It doesn't in mine or my boyfriends. Have they named the kidney?

To Ricci Yes I guess it could come from a few generations back but Im the oldest of 15 grandchildren and Im 23 the rest are pretty much 12 and under. My fiance has a big family to and has a nephew and a niece that are 19 months and 1 so why would'nt it of shown up there? With all of those kids you know it just doesnt make sense.

Hey rikki I had my appointment and everything went great! Kindeys not getting bigger everythings fine worse they will have to do is remove it. I found out that what he has is not from heredity and was just something that happened during devolpment. But everything looks fine and we are very happy about our report:)
