Abstract

ADPKD is an inherited systemic disorder that predominantly affects the kidney, but may affect other organs including liver, pancreas, brain, and arterial blood vessel. APKPD occurs worldwide affecting about 1 in 500 - 1000 people. Hypertension is the most common manifestation of ADPKD and the major contributor to renal disease progression. A definite diagnosis of ADPKD relies on image testing. Renal ultrasound is commonly used because of its cost effectiveness.
