Sure, it's polycystic kidney disease. Its a disorder in which clusters of cysts develop primarily within your kidneys. The cysts are numerous and fluid-filled, resulting in massive enlargement of the kidneys. It can also damage the liver, pancreas and, in some rare cases, the heart and brain. The two major forms of polycystic kidney disease are distinguished by their patterns of inheritance. The Mayo clinic website has a good explination of what it is.
