The designation of “acquired cystic disease of the kidney”: This disease is called “acquired cystic disease of the kidney,” “acquired renal cystic disease,” or “acquired cystic kidney disease” in the English-language literature. However, I considered that these terms did not truly represent the characteristics of the disease and named it tanouhouka-isyukujin in Japanese, thus implying that atrophic kidneys later develop multiple renal cysts [9]. At present, the terms ta-nouhouka-isyukujin in Japanese, ACDK, and “acquired cystic disease of the kidney” are used in Japan, of which the first two are predominant.
