The lesions are consistent, most probably with a congenital polycystic disease sporadically observed in many animal species. It is associated with an autosomal dominant character. In several species the condition is believed to be related to the mutation of one or several genes (PKD-1 and/or PKD-2) and the alteration of their related proteins mainly polycistin-1 and polycistin-2. In any case, it poses no risk for the consumer.

      Thanks for your comment.
      Yes. Histopathology was done and renal dysplasia, neoplasia or inflammatory conditions were ruled out.
