    Renal cysts. I've only seen it (pictures) in red deer. It's not hydronephrosis, where the cortex (outer part) becomes really thin. No known cause, not a food problem as far as I am aware

    Whoops.

    For some reason all of those replies didn't show until after I had written mine.

    Thanks guys I think polycistic nephrosis is the diagnosis with lack of antlers being a symptom or possibly the other way round?, ie the lack antler growth triggered the nephrosis?
