Is polycystic ovary syndrome related to polycystic kidney disease?

Totally unrelated: Apart from the word connection these are totally unrelated conditions. Having 1 does not lead to the other. Polycystic ovarian syndrome (pcos) is a complex disorder affecting the ovaries which may cause irregular cycles, fertility or metabolic problems. Polycystic kidney disease is genetic disorder and comes in two versions, both causing kidney problems, which may end in kidney failure / dialysis.
