My daughter is only 13 years old and she has some urinary tract symptoms. We were worried what that could be so we took her to pediatrician. He discovered she has renal cyst incidentally during his investigation. He said that the diagnosis of a simple renal cyst is made based on typical radiological findings. That is why I would like to hear more about renal cyst, is that condition common in children, or she just had bad luck.

The presentation of simple renal cysts has changed from the presence of an abdominal mass to most cases. These cases were currently being detected on ultrasound scanning to research more about renal cyst. Sonographic features of a simple renal cyst are defined as a round, smooth-walled mass with no internal echoes. Usually, renal cysts cause abnormal renal function and the absence of other renal pathology. Some problems caused with this problem are polycystic disease, cystic dilatation in the upper pole of a duplex kidney, calyceal diverticulum, and abscess or a cystic mass. However, this must be confirmed before making the diagnosis of a simple renal cyst. If the diagnosis cannot be established with certainty based on an ultrasound scan, doctors usually, use CT scans. Those are undertaken to delineate further renal parenchyma. We reserve aspiration under ultrasound guidance for simple cysts that might cause loin pain. In series of these researches, the two largest cysts caused pain that responded to aspiration under ultrasound guidance. At the end to say that, renal cysts are uncommon in children and their presence and management has changed with increasing use of ultrasound scans.
