Ⅱ.Discomforts in waist and abdomen. The increase of renal capsular tension or
the pull of renal pedicle vessels and nerves can lead to dull pain. If there is
bleeding in the cyst and the blood clot block the urethra or there is infection

1g/24hours. Leucocyturia is commonly seen, which doesn’t suggest infection.
Ⅴ. Hypertension: It is commonly seen and will directly influence the
prognosis of the disease. It is related to the pressing of the cyst on normal
renal tissues and causes renal ischemia and water and sodium retention.
Ⅵ. Damage to renal function: The loss of renal function is related to the

sclerosis, inflammation, fibrosis and the high filtration and high perfusion of
the remaining renal tissues.
