Figure 45-6

Autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease.

A longitudinal sonographic image of a 2-month-old infant with bilateral flank masses shows an enlarged kidney, coarse hyperechogenicity of the medulla, and distortion of the collecting system. Relative sparing of the cortex results in a hypoechoic rim.

Figure 45-7

Autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease.

A longitudinal sonographic image of a newborn shows nephromegaly, marked parenchymal hyperechogenicity, small medullary cysts, and a relatively hypoechoic peripheral cortical rim.

8. Autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease

Figure 45-8

Autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease.

This is a newborn infant with a history of oligohydramnios and bilateral nephromegaly on prenatal ultrasound. A longitudinal image of the right kidney obtained with a high frequency transducer shows innumerable medullary cysts, including a few larger cysts (C) that measure up to several millimeters in diameter. The medullary region of the kidney is expanded and echogenic. There is a peripheral hypoechoic margin of cortex (arrows).
