However, currently there is no specific treatment for the disease. NF1 is caused by mutations in the NF1 gene, approximately 2.1% of constitutional mutations identified in our population are(More)
The Sanger sequencing of patients with recessive polycystic kidney disease is challenging due to the length and heterogeneous mutational spectrum of the PKHD1 gene. Next generation sequencing (NGS) might thus be of special interest to search for PKHD1 mutations. The study involved a total of 22 patients with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease(More)
