Links to MONDO diseases: No links.
Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown
Considered a defect: yes
Cross-species summary: Animals appear normal at birth, but develop distended abdomens and show signs of distress between 24 and 48 hours. Death follows within ten days. Autopsy reveals numerous cysts (up to 1 cm in diameter) in the liver and on the surface of the kidney.
Inheritance: The only published report (Groth and Rosdail, 1955) provides limited evidence of familial occurrence, but no genetic data.
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
