This article cannot comprehensively cover the enormous strides made in defining the molecular and cellular basis of renal cystic diseases over the last decade. Therefore, it provides a brief overview and categorization of inherited, developmental, and acquired renal cystic diseases, providing a relevant, up-to-date bibliography as well as a useful list of informative Internet Web sites. Its major focus is the translational biology of polycystic kidney disease. It demonstrates how emerging molecular and cellular knowledge of the pathophysiology of particular diseases such as autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) and autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) can translate into innovative therapeutic insights.
