Cyst infection is a common complication of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. It presents with vague clinical features and imaging findings which make the diagnosis challenging. Imaging findings can be misinterpreted as renal cell carcinoma, and biopsy of the lesion is often required for definitive diagnosis.
