Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common autosomal recessive disorder among white individuals, and occurs in all South African population groups. Recent evidence suggests a prevalence of 1 in 2 000 among white South Africans and 1 in 12 000 in the coloured population. In black South Africans carrier frequency estimates have been used to project the incidence of 1 in 4 624 live births.
