  • Polycystic kidney disease 5 (PKD5) [MIM:617610]: A form of polycystic kidney disease, a disorder characterized by progressive formation and enlargement of cysts in both kidneys, typically leading to end-stage renal disease in adult life. Cysts may also occur in other organs, particularly the liver. PKD5 inheritance is autosomal recessive. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:28530676}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
