Abstract: 
Nephronophthisis (NPHP) is a group of autosomal recessive renal diseases characterized by a reduced ability of the kidneys to concentrate solutes, chronic tubulointerstitial nephritis, and cystic kidney disease. It represents the most common genetic cause of childhood renal failure. To date, around 20 different genes, encoding primary cilia proteins, have been linked to NPHP. These contribute to one-third of cases with NPHP while the majority of patients remain molecularly undiagnosed.
