Hereditary Kidney Diseases

The kidney is also affected by genetic disorders like Polycystic Kidney Disease, Alport Syndrome which are generally called Hereditary Kidney Diseases. Some diseases are caused by the mutations in the gene. In some cases, a person may inherit a gene with a mutation that usually leads to a disease, but never get that disease. In these cases, either unrelated genes that a person inherits can protect from developing the disease, or else both  the mutation in the gene and some environmental exposure are required to get the disease, and the person without the disease just never had that environmental exposure. In recent days Polycystic Overian Disease is found very common among women.
