Abstract

Background. Nephronophthisis (NPHP) is the most common genetic cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in the first 3 decades of life. Treatment of patients with NPHP is symptomatic; kidney transplantation is the treatment of choice when ESRD is established. We report herein our center's experience with kidney transplantation for children with juvenile NPHP.
