In common with other Mendelian diseases, the presentation and progression of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) vary widely in the population. The typical course is of adult-onset disease with ESRD in the 6th decade. However, a small proportion has adequate renal function into the 9th decade, whereas others present with enlarged kidneys as neonates. ADPKD is genetically heterogeneous, and the disease gene is a major determinant of severity; PKD1 on average is associated with… CONTINUE READING
