Term Detail
MP term:abnormal kidney collecting duct morphology
Synonym: abnormal collecting tubule morphology
Synonym: abnormal kidney collecting tube morphology
Synonym: abnormal kidney collecting tubule morphology
Synonym: abnormal renal collecting duct morphology
Synonym: abnormal renal collecting tube morphology
MP id: MP:0004754
Definition: any structural anomaly of the kidney ducts lined by simple cuboidal epithelium that collect urine from the distal convoluted tubules, merge and become larger as they descend from the renal cortex into the medulla, and respond to vasopressin and aldosterone to regulate water, electrolyte and acid-base balance; each cortical collecting duct joints with other ducts to make a medullary connecting duct, which eventually drains into a papillary duct, emptying urine into the renal pelvis for drainage into the ureter
