Polycystic liver disease (PLD) usually describes the presence of multiple cysts scattered throughout normal liver tissue, in association with polycystic kidney disease.

Pathophysiology[edit]

Associations with PRKCSH and SEC63 have been described.[1] Polycystic Liver Disease comes in two forms as ADPKD (with kidney cysts) and ADPLD (liver cysts alone without any kidney cysts).
