Abstract

A pregnant woman affected with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease(ADPKD) had a history of an affected fetus , diagnosed by sonography at 29 weeks of pregnancy. The proband's father was also affected. DNA analysis performed on chorionic villi at 11 weeks during a second pregnancy predicted an affected fetus, and sonographic examination at 14 weeks confirmed the diagnosis.
