Abstract

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is a relatively common genetic disorder, and its prenatal diagnosis has been reported with increasing frequency. Nevertheless, no data are available on the significance of prenatal ultrasound (US) patterns in predicting postnatal renal function and outcome. We report on one case of ADPKD diagnosed prenatally by US, and on two cases diagnosed immediately after birth, with different prenatal US and renal outcomes. Data on prenatal US findings and postnatal renal evolution are scanty and largely incomplete. Apparently, none of the prenatal findings are consistently different in cases with and without normal post- natal renal function and blood pressure. More complete information on prenatal US findings and postnatal renal evolution is urgently needed.
