Correct Answer Answer

The correct answer is:
D)
Polycithemia vera

Polycythemia vera is marked by decreased erythropoeitin (EPO), which distinguishes it from other forms of polycyhtemia, all of which are associated with increased eryhthropoeitin.

Based on the observations that serum EPO levels in patients with ADPKD are on average twofold higher than in end-stage renal disease of other causes and that renal cysts may contain erythropoietic activity it is assumed that an improved EPO production by the cystic kidneys is a major reason for
higher hematocrit values.


EPO in Renal cell carcinoma is sometimes increased.
