If you are newly diagnosed or want to learn more about PKD, this session is for you. In this webinar, we will learn about the basics of ADPKD and ARPKD including basic genetic and clinical aspects of the disease.

Learning objectives

  • Compare the genetics of ADPKD and ARPKD.
  • Describe basic information about PKD.
  • List symptoms associated with PKD.
