Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is the most common hereditary renal disease. The course and progression of the disease is highly variable. In this study, we aimed to investigate the impact of clinical characteristics and basic biochemical parameters on progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in ADPKD patients.
