Renal cysts associated with Turner's syndrome

  • T. E. Herman

After noting several occurrences of cystic kidney disease in Turner's syndrome we retrospectively reviewed the renal sonograms of 12 patients with this syndrome. Single renal cysts occurred in two patients and a multicystic dysplastic kidney in another. Our experience suggests that single renal cysts are a relatively frequent finding in Turner's syndrome and should be recognized within the scope of renal abnormalities associated with it.
