A Case Report: Prenatal Ultrasonographic Diagnosis of Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease.
Eun Hye Lee, Myung Choel Shin
Abstract
Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is a hereditary disorder characterized by renal cyst formation, hypertension, and end-stage renal disease. For many years, ADPKD was considered an adult disease. In fact, it may occur at any time in life including in utero. We experienced a case of ADPKD at 34 weeks of gestation. On ultrasound, both kidnies were enlarged and echogenic. Amniotic fluid index was normal. We discovered a family history of paternal origin. Sonographic findings of bilaterally enlarged and echogenic kidnies without oligohydroamniosis may suggest ADPKD. Renal ultrasound examination of parents is useful in the diagnosis of ADPKD.
Key Words: Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, Prenatal diagnosis, Ultrasound
