Info What diseases give large kidneys on sonogram and CT scan?

Amyloid, HIV nephropathy, PKD, and DM.

From MTB2. But aren't there other diseases that can cause large kidney too?

There are carcinomas and pyelonephritis and others maybe but maybe MTB mentioned only that are not too obvious to the readers?

Question

This point is only a bit incomplete at most.

The 7th edition of MTB2 does have some errors through the book.

CFMD should put forward a correction file just as the First Aid team does.
