It was so eye opening to be able to gross a specimen that we recently went over in our SPT and MOD classes. This is a specimen from a patient with Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease causes multiple cystic lesions on the capsular surface of the kidney as well as within the kidney parenchyma. It important to thoroughly examine each cystic space for any areas that could harbor renal cell carcinoma. I am so excited to be able to gross specimens of this complexity in my first year, and feel better prepared for my clinical clerkship next year.
