Multicystic dysplastic kidney (MCDK)

Specialty of Paediatric urology

Multicystic dysplastic kidney (MCDK) is a condition where the kidney is replaced by multiple cysts, resulting in little or no normal function of the kidney. The condition occurs during the foetal development of the baby, and of the kidney. The condition is usually detected during prenatal ultrasound screening, and is not treatable. The other kidney will be monitored, and the unhealthy kidney checked to ensure it is not causing adverse effects.
