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


Associations with PRKCSH and SEC63 have been described.[1] Polycystic liver disease comes in two forms as autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (with kidney cysts) and autosomal dominant polycystic liver disease (liver cysts only).
