This information sheet is about autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD). It’s for expectant parents who have been told that their unborn child has or may have ARPKD; parents of babies and children with ARPKD; and ARPKD carriers who are planning a family. It explains the causes of ARPKD, how it’s diagnosed, its symptoms, treatment, and how the disease might progress.
