Background: Cystic fibrosis, a pulmonary disease which is an autosomal recessive, inherited, multisystemic genetic disease commonly seen in the Caucasian race, is the most frequent cause of mortality and morbidity. So far, more than 2000 disease-causing gene variants have been found and this number has been increasing with the studies conducted. Although there is not yet enough data that include the Turkish population, the recent increase of studies is noteworthy.
