Answer

Worldwide, ADPKD affects approximately 4 to 7 million individuals and accounts for 7-15% of patients on renal replacement therapy. [17] In North America and Europe, ADPKD is responsible for 6-10% of ESRD cases. Approximately one per 800-1000 population carries a mutation for this condition. Approximately 85-90% of patients with ADPKD have ADPKD1; most of the remaining patients have ADPKD2. [18]
