Abstract

Patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) secondary to autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) receive fewer living-related kidney (LRK) transplants than other groups with ESRD. This relates to the difficulties in excluding the disease in potential donors. We report a case which highlights these difficulties and, by discovery of mosaicism for a new mutation, illustrates the role of clinical and molecular genetic resources in assessing young related kidney donors for patients with ADPKD.
