ALL renal cyst types produce erythropoietin ?

Accepted Answer Pending Moderation

Interstitial cells adjacent to proximal cyst cells produce erythropoietin. Given the sheer number of cysts in patients with ADPKD, higher hematocrits can be observed. This observation is likely not applicable to sporadic, acquired cystic changes in the kidney.
