Genetic disorders of the kidney include cystic syndromes, metabolic syndromes and immune glomerulonephritis. Cystic diseases comprise autosomal dominant and recessive polycystic kidney disease. Neonates with enlarged, cystic kidneys should be evaluated for Polycystic Kidney Diseases.

Polycystic kidney disease is a genetic disorder that causes numerous cysts to produce in the kidneys. These tumours can obstruct with kidney function and cause kidney failure.
