Abstract The aim of this study was to characterize by immunohistochemistry the histogenesis of cysts in acquired cystic kidney disease (ACKD). Thirty renal tissues fixed in 10% formalin and embedded in paraffin from 20 cases of ACKD were studied. Vimentin was used to stain the Bowman's capsule epithelium, Lotus tetragonolobus agglutinin (LTA) and Leu M1 (CD 15) for proximal tubules; Tamm-Horsfall protein (THP) for distal tubules; epithelial membrane antigen (EMA), cytokeratin 19 (CK19), Arachis hypogea agglutinin (PNA), and Glycine maximum agglutinin (SBA) for distal tubules and collecting ducts; and Ulex ettropaeus agglutinin (UEA-I) and Dolichos biflorus agglutinin (DBA) for collecting ducts. A histologically normal kidney, free of cystic disease, was used as a control for all the markers. Most of the cysts showed strong reactivity to LTA and CD15, an immunophenotype more characteristic of proximal tubules.
