Sporadic Glomerulocystic Kidney Disease

Sporadic glomerulocystic kidney disease is a sporadic bilateral renal disease, with enlargement and formation of cysts on the basis of the glomerulus (Bowmann's membrane). The disease is, per definition, a noninheritable condition.

In the early course, the sporadic glomerulocystic kidney disease is hardly to distinguish from early forms of the autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), especially if the family history is unclear. Some authors consider the syndrome a subtype of ADPKD (Bernstein, 1993).
