2014-03-04 03:40

Kidney enlargement is a disorder in which the size of a kidney is larger than normal. In general, it is a sign of an underlying kidney disease and disorder. What are the causes and treatment of kidney enlargement?


Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a common cause of kidney enlargement in children. It is a genetic kidney disorder featured with multiple cysts in the kidneys. As the cysts increase in size persistently, kidney enlargement will result.

There is no an effective treatment for PKD in the conventional treatment. When kidneys fail to function, Dialysis and kidney transplant will be prescribed eventually.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a new treatment for PKD. This therapy can stop the cysts from enlarging and also can increase the excretion of fluid from the cysts. If so, the enlarged kidneys will be shrunk.


Hydronephrosis refers to kidney enlargement caused by backed up urine. This condition can occur in one or both of the kidneys. When some kidney problems prevent the urine from entering into the bladder, it will cause urine to back up in the kidneys. An obstruction can be a possible reason for this occurrence. If children experience kidney enlargement, the condition may be caused by birth defects and blockages.

As a variety of conditions can contribute to it, to control it, a treatment should be applied to control the primary diseases and conditions. If it is due to birth defects, surgery will be required.

Kidney stone

Kidney stone is another possible cause of kidney enlargement. A kidney stone is caused by deposits of minerals and salt inside the kidney. The development of stones inside the kidneys can cause them to grow, leading to kidney enlargement. If the kidney stone grows to a big size, it will cause many problems and even Kidney Failure. Lithotripsy is commonly used to treat big stones. However, it can stop kidney stones from forming again.
