BACKGROUND The autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (APDKD) genotype influences renal phenotype severity but its effect on polycystic liver disease (PLD) is unknown. Here we analyzed the influence of genotype on liver phenotype severity. METHODS Clinical data were retrieved from electronic records of patients who were mutation screened with the available liver imaging (n = 434). Liver volumes were measured by stereology (axial or coronal images) and adjusted to height (HtLV… CONTINUE READING
