A prenatal diagnosis of adult polycystic kidney disease by DNA testing is reported. Evidence showing a linkage between the disease and the 3'HVR and 24.1 restriction fragment length polymorphisms(RFLPs) on chromosome 16 was ob obtained in the proband's family by linkage analysis of data and homogeneity testing with Italian families of the linked type. Fetal genotype prediction based on both flanking markers was confirmed by histological and ultrastructural findings in fetal kidneys.
