Abstract

Autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD) is a severe form of polycystic kidney disease that is characterized by enlarged kidneys and congenital hepatic fibrosis. The clinical spectrum of this condition shows wide variation. Approximately 30-50% of affected individuals die in the neonatal period, while others survive into adulthood. ARPKD is caused by mutations in the polycystic kidney and hepatic disease 1 (PKHD1) gene on chromosome 6p12, which consists of 86 exons variably assembled into many alternatively spliced transcripts. We report a case of a pathogenic PKHD1 frameshift mutation, c.889_931del43, which was identified using direct full sequencing, associated with enlarged cystic kidneys and dilatation of intrahepatic bile duct, as observed on imaging studies.
