ABSTRACT

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a rare form of swine congenital renal malformation in contrast to other species, especially cats and humans. The most affected animals developed renal failure which canálead to death at the neonatal age. PKD was detected in 5 white domestic pigs (Polish Landrasse). All affected pigs are descendants of the same males, but they came from two litters, in one litter 2 of 10 pigs were affected by the disease, in the second litter 3 of 10 pigs. The pigs did not have symptoms of renal failure (to 50 kg of body weight), and the disease was detected incidentally during a routine autopsy examination. Despite PKD is a rare disorder in the swine, it should be monitored in the pig population to avoid its expansion because of its genetic origin.

Key words: cysts, kidney disease, swine, urinary tract, pig.
