[Apropos of hepatorenal polycystic disease associated with cirrhosis].

[Article in French]

Abstract

The authors report a case of association of cirrhosis with (autosomal dominant) polycystic kidney and liver disease, which is hereditary malformation. The occurrence of hepatic cysts during the disease is relatively common, and the development in general is benign. In this case, the large hepatic cysts are responsible of biliary ducts compression, with clinical and biological cholestasis. Portal hypertension like impaired hepatocellular function develop because of cirrhosis.
