Abstract

Advanced polycystic renal disease associated with pregnancy is very rare. A severely uremic pregnant patient with Landesman's Group C disease was delivered by cesarean section at 33 weeks' gestation, after dexamethasone treatment for fetal lung maturation. This is the first surviving infant in a case of Group C polycystic kidney disease.
