Abstract

Localized cystic disease (LCD) is the accumulation of multiple simple cysts, partially involving the kidney which are usually detected incidentally. Imaging findings of LCD are important to differentiate it from other renal cystic diseases and to avoid unnecessary surgery. Although it is known as a non-progressive condition, we present here the imaging findings of a case with LCD showing progression in long-term period.
