Abstract

A 42-year-old woman with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) was admitted to our hospital on April 29, 1999, with complaints of abdominal pain. A diagnosis of intestinal obstruction was reached on the basis of clinical findings and X-ray evidence. A computed tomography scan of the abdomen showed massively enlarged kidneys, especially the right kidney, which seemed to compress the small intestine. The patient underwent percutaneous aspiration of the largest cysts on the surface of the right kidney. The symptoms, in this rare case of intestinal obstruction by an enlarged kidney in ADPKD, were alleviated the day after the aspiration procedure.<br>(Internal Medicine 41: 441-44, 2002)
