Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is the most common genetic renal disorder, with a prevalence of 1 : 500 to 1 : 1,000. ADPKD is genetically heterogeneous: the genes involved are PKD1 and PKD2. ADPKD occurs worldwide and in all ethnic groups and is an important cause of CKD Stage 5. Prevalence of ADPKD on renal replacement therapy (RRT) in Italy has been reported to be 8.2%. In the dialysis population of Vicenza, a province in Northeastern Italy, it accounts for 13.4%. The study aims to investigate reasons for the high prevalence of ADPKD in our region and to describe the clinical profile and genetics of these patients.
