Abstract

Six families with prolidase deficiency (PD) and chronic lung disease are reported, a previously unrecognized association. In one family with a classic cystic fibrosis (CF) phenotype, no evidence for CF Transmembrane Conductance Regulator (CFTR)-related mutations could be found. Chronic lung disease and CFTR-mutation negative CF may be associated with PD.
