Positive data originating from two polycystic liver patients treated with somatostatin analogues, showed a volume reduction of 38.3% and 14.9%. These two patients had complicated polycystic livers and no other therapeutic options were available.

Patients who participated in LOCKCYST trial are able to benefit from active treatment. Participants will be actively treated for 24 weeks.

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants from 18 years up to 88 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - Participated in the LOCKCYST trial - 18 yrs-of age - Multiple cysts > 20 - Cooperating patient - Is willing and able to comply with the study drug regimen and all other study requirements. - Willingness to give written informed consent Exclusion Criteria: - Use of oral anticonceptives or estrogen suppletion - Females who are pregnant or breast-feeding - History or other evidence of chronic pulmonary disease associated with functional limitation - History of severe cardiac disease (eg, NYHA Functional Class III or IV, myocardial infarction within 6 months, ventricular tachyarrhythmias requiring ongoing treatment, unstable angina or other significant cardiovascular diseases). In addition, patients with documented or presumed coronary artery disease or cerebrovascular disease should not be enrolled. - History or other evidence of severe illness or any other conditions which would make the patient, in the opinion of the investigator, unsuitable for the study - Symptomatic gallstones (lanreotide decreases gall bladder volume) - Renal failure requiring hemodialysis
