Grand Rounds in Pediatric Nephrology – an ISN-IPNA Sister Centers Initiative: Renal Tubular Acidosis: Let T(r)ooth Be Told…
- 2:00 PM CEST
We present 2 children with poor growth, polyuria, dental abnormalities, hypokalemia, and hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis. Detailed evaluation suggested the diagnosis of rate-dependent distal renal tubular acidosis with bilateral medullary nephrocalcinosis. There was transient proximal tubular dysfunction with hypophosphatemia and aminoaciduria. Genetic screening helped clarify the clinical diagnosis, and enable genetic counselling.
- To outline the clinical approach and evaluation of a patient with suspected renal tubular acidosis.
- To review the extra-renal manifestations of renal tubular acidosis
- To discuss the importance of genetic testing in children with renal tubular acidosis
