Abstract

The mean age of onset of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is between 56 and 69. Our case represents one of the oldest patients with ADPKD, whose chronic kidney disease (CKD) progression rate could be successfully reduced by optimal risk factor modification.
