348 Possible Causes for Echogenic Kidneys

  • Urinary Tract Infection

    Ultrasonography revealed large hypoechoic mass, including multiple cysts in the upper pole of the transplanted kidney.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Renal parenchymal echogenicity was also increased in the upper pole. Ultrasonography-guided percutaneous drainage was performed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ventriculomegaly-Cystic Kidney Disease

    The incidence of echogenic kidneys has been estimated at 1.6 cases per 1000 sonograms.[mhmedical.com] It is characterized by cerebral ventriculomegaly, echogenic kidneys, microscopic renal tubular cysts and findings of congenital nephrosis.[uniprot.org] It is characterized by cerebral ventriculomegaly, echogenic kidneys, microscopic renal tubular cysts and findings of congenital nephrosis. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:25557780}.[genecards.org]

  • AIDS-associated Nephropathy

    Gray scale ultrasound images of left and right kidneys shows bilaterally enlarged and echogenic kidneys in this patient with HIV and acute renal failure.[med-ed.virginia.edu] Normal sized or enlarged kidneys. Reduced kidney size is highly unlikely. 2. The characteristic feature of HIVAN is the increase in renal echogenicity.[sonoworld.com] HIVAN is typically a disease of young black men and is characterized by massive proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia, large echogenic kidneys, normotension, and a fulminant progression[link.springer.com]

  • Bilateral Multicystic Dysplastic Kidney

    . • Enlarged echogenic kidney, with no cortico- medullary differentiation or renal sinus. • Multiple variable sized non communicating cysts. US 11.[slideshare.net] A renal ultrasound is obtained that shows bilateral enlarged echogenic kidneys. The bladder is decompressed.[hawaii.edu] Ultrasound investigation in the mid trimester of pregnancy reveals bilateral enlarged echogenic kidneys and oligohydramnios.[health24.com]

  • Cystic Kidney

    A cohort of 44 families in whom antenatal renal ultrasound scanning findings in affected cases included bilateral cystic kidney disease, echogenic kidneys or enlarged kidneys[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] kidneys found in perinatal period large amount of variability both within and between families 30% of patients with ARPKD die in neonatal period Prevalence and Inheritance[en.wikibooks.org] It is characterized by cerebral ventriculomegaly, echogenic kidneys, microscopic renal tubular cysts and findings of congenital nephrosis.[uniprot.org]

  • Oligomeganephronia

    Diagnostic methods Diagnosis can be suspected by bilateral small and echogenic kidneys on ultrasound.[orpha.net] The size of the kidneys on ultrasound was between -1 to -2 SD for height (right 9.3; left 9.6cm) and both kidneys showed a diffuse increase in echogenicity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Adult Polycystic Kidney Disease Type 1

    kidneys found in perinatal period large amount of variability both within and between families 30% of patients with ARPKD die in neonatal period Prevalence and Inheritance[en.wikibooks.org] kidneys, often with hepatic cystic development.[news-medical.net] […] when cysts small (children) · Renal contour poorly demarcated OB-US · Large echogenic kidneys similar to infantile PCKD (usually in 3rd trimester, earliest sonographic diagnosis[learningradiology.com]

  • Meckel-Gruber Syndrome

    In utero (and early neonatal life) multicystic renal disease is usually evident as enlarged echogenic kidneys : demonstration of physical cysts within the kidneys only occurs[radiopaedia.org] Encephalocele and enlarged echogenic kidneys were reconfirmed. The parents were counseled of the likely diagnosis of Meckel Gruber syndrome.[jpma.org.pk]

  • Nephronophthisis

    Renal morphology, characterized by hyper-echogenic kidneys on ultrasound and tubular lesions with interstitial fibrosis on histology, was similar in the two patient groups[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Renal sonograms of all patients showed enlarged and echogenic kidneys that lacked corticomedullary differentiation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] With progress of disease kidneys often are small with highly increased echogenicity.[neocyst.de]

  • Nephronophthisis

    We present a case of a foetal sonographic finding of hyper-echogenic kidneys, which led to a strategic series of genetic tests and identified a homozygous mutation (c.424C[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Renal sonograms of all patients showed enlarged and echogenic kidneys that lacked corticomedullary differentiation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] With progress of disease kidneys often are small with highly increased echogenicity.[neocyst.de]
