Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ODPKD) is characterized by presence of multiple cysts in kidneys and other organs, and it is the most common hereditary kidney disorder. Approximately 8-10% of all cases progress to end stage renal failure. There may be multiple cysts in different sizes, widespread in the cortex and medulla of both kidneys filling the whole parencyhma. The cysts may also be seen in liver, spleen, pancreas and other organs. Although cases with unilateral ODPKD have been reported in literature, only a few adult cases have been reported with ODPKD accompanied by unilateral renal agenesis. Our case is a 62-year-old male patient who has ODPKD accompanied by unilateral renal agenesis and late-onset ulcerative colitis and who is presented with a review of the literature.
