Hi,
How are you? What other diagnostic tests were done?  Most simple kidney cysts are incidental findings found during imaging tests done. These are abnormal, fluid-filled sacs that form in the kidneys and are more common as people age. The cause is not fully understood but it can be due to obstruction or deficiency of blood supply to the kidneys; but not necessarily with the seizure. Size can range from 1 mm to 10 m in size. Small cysts usually do not cause symptoms or harm the kidneys. With regards to the seizure, further evaluation by a neurologist may need to be done and additional diagnostic tests such as EEG may also help. Take care and do keep us posted.
