Alagille's syndrome associated with cystic renal disease.

Although renal abnormalities have been described in children with Alagille's syndrome, cystic kidney disease has not often been documented, and then usually only at necropsy. Three children with Alagille's syndrome are described, in two of whom a unilateral multicystic dysplastic kidney was detected by prenatal ultrasound; in the other, a solitary cortical cyst was found later in childhood. All have normal renal function, growth, and liver synthetic function but continue to have clinical and biochemical signs of cholestasis. These cases show that unilateral cystic kidney disease with or without renal dysplasia may be associated with Alagille's syndrome, that the clinical course is not necessarily unfavourable, and that Alagille's syndrome should be included in the differential diagnosis of cystic kidney disorders associated with cholestatic liver disease. Patients with Alagille's syndrome should be evaluated by renal ultrasound.
