The pain is dull and aggravates if the infection is accompanied by kidney stone and hematuria. Patients may also experience high blood pressure, slight proteinuria (less than 2g/24hours) or enlarged kidneys. But a kidney cyst infection may be also caused by some other diseases such as pyelonephritis, infected kidney stones, or perinephric abscess. A test is needed to confirm the real cause so that proper treatment can be taken.

- Urinary tract infection (UTI)

Urinary tract infection is the most common complication of PKD. When the cysts rupture, the cystic fluids will flow out. The fluids will cause infection to the organs where they flow through. When they flow through the urinary tract, it will cause urinary tract infection. There are also some possible symptoms such as:
