Sporadic Glomerulocystic Kidney Disease
Sporadic glomerulocystic kidney disease is a sporadic bilateral renal disease, with enlargement and formation of cysts based on the glomerulus (Bowmann membrane). The disease is, per definition, a noninheritable condition.
In the early course, sporadic glomerulocystic kidney disease is hard to distinguish from autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), especially if the family history is unclear. Some authors consider the syndrome a subtype of ADPKD (Bernstein, 1993).
