Abstract

Autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD) is an important renal disease of childhood. Congenital hypothyroidism has been associated with glomerulocystic kidney disease, but to date no association has been made with ARPKD. To our knowledge this is the first reported case of congenital hypothyroidism in an infant with ARPKD.
