hepatorenal dysplastic syndromes

Tuesday 11 November 2003

The hepatorenal fibrocystic (HRFC) syndromes are a heterogeneous group of severe monogenic conditions. HRFC syndromes present in the neonatal and paediatric age with consistent developmental abnormalities mostly involving the liver and kidney, including the proliferation and dilatation of epithelial ducts in these tissues with abnormal deposition of extracellular matrix.


- bilateral non-obstructive multicystic renal dysplasia (BNOMRD)
- hepatic ductal plate dysplasia (ductal plate malformation or DPM)

  • hepatic fibrocystic disease (HFCD) or liver fibrocytsic disease (previously congenital hepatic fibrosis)


- autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (renal ARPKD, hepatic ARPKD)
- juvenile nephronophthisis (NPHP)
- Meckel-syndrome (Meckel-Gruber syndrome (MKS)
- Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS)
- Jeune syndrome (Jeune asphyxiating thoracic dystrophy or JATD)
