With the clinical diagnosis of Bartter syndrome, the child began therapy with increasing supplementation of potassium chloride, in order to normalise plasma potassium levels, to which was later added indomethacin. Clearly, this channel malfunction will cause an altered transport of sodium and chloride in the distal nephron. Medullary nephrocalcinosis, a hallmark of pure TAL dysfunction, is rare.

Only the most activating mutations of the receptor are associated with significant salt wasting. Support Center Support Center. Devuyst O, Pirson Y. The newborn was discharged on the 6 th week wnfermedad life, so we decided not to start indomethacin because of the risk of necrotizing enterocolitis and acute renal failure before this age 1,3,7.

She began therapy with potassium chloride supplementation and indomethacin. Published online Jul Table 1 Laboratory tests on Nephrology Unit admission.

Investigations The investigation revealed negative allergology study, normal sweat test, barttter antitransglutaminase antibody, abdominal and kidney ultrasound without changes, including nephrocalcinosis and endoscopy with incompetent cardia and normal intestinal biopsy.

Our case report presented all those features.

Síndrome de Bartter antenatal

The ClC-Kb is located in the basolateral membrane of distal tubular cells and allows the passage of chloride from the cell into the bloodstream. The term Bartter syndrome does not refer to a single entity.


Bartter-Gitelman syndromes and other inherited tubular transport abnormalities. Antenatal Bartter enfedmedad results from disturbed salt reabsorption along the thick ascending limb of Henle TAL due to defects either in the NKCC2 sodium-potassium-chloride co-transporter gene, renal outer medullary potassium channel potassium ion channel gene, barttin or both ClC-Ka and ClC-Kb chloride enfegmedad channel genes.

Early intervention and specific treatment options play a enfefmedad role in reducing the complication rates of the affected neonates and should be initiated as soon as possible 7.

Bartter, Gitelman, and Related Syndromes. We herein present a case of ABS whose diagnosis was early suspected due to familial and prenatal history. The typical features include early onset of fetal polyuria causing maternal polyhydramnios and preterm delivery, intrauterine growth restriction, postnatal polyuria, episodes of dehydration, nephrocalcinosis and osteopenia 2,3.

Síndrome de Gitelman

Abstract Bartter syndrome is a group of rare autosomal-recessive disorders caused by a defect in distal tubule transport of sodium and chloride. Etiology Bartter syndrome with hypocalcemia is caused enfeermedad gain-of-function mutations in CASR gene 3q Kidney Int ;72 9: Furthermore, nearly all ABS patients develop medullary nephrocalcinosis within the first month of life 1which was also observed by us.

The resulting bzrtter will stimulate prostaglandin synthesis, which in turn will induce compensatory increases in the activity of the renin, angiotensin and adrenergic systems to maintain blood pressure. Laboratory examination shows a typical constellation of metabolic alkalosis, low normal chloride levels, hypokalaemia, and hypomagnesaemia; urine analysis shows hypocalciuria.

Pregnancy was complicated by severe polyhydramnios at 24 weeks, which led to hospitalization and therapeutic amniodrainage at 28 weeks of gestation.

Language delay was also detected, but with no changes regarding hearing acuity. The long-term prognosis is generally good, but close attention to electrolyte balance, volume status and growth is recommended.

The documents contained in this web site are presented for enfrmedad purposes only. Despite being rare in clinical practice, which may lead to unnecessary medical investigation and diagnosis delay, in a child with failure to thrive, hypochloraemic metabolic alkalosis and hypokalaemia, this diagnosis must be considered. Perinatal period was uneventful.

Inherited primary renal tubular hypokalemic alkalosis: The tubular defect in Bartter syndrome cannot be corrected.

Unexplained polyhydramnios between 24 and 30 weeks enfeemedad gestation, without apparent foetal or placental abnormalities should lead to the suspicion of this entity 3. This disorder is usually severe in the neonatal period and early childhood but it improves gradually which allows to reduce the intensity of treatment or stop it for a period1.

Blood pressure is typically normal. The molecular study revealed a genetic mutation in ClC-Kb, confirming that it was the classic form of Bartter syndrome. Hypocalcaemia may be asymptomatic or associated with paresthesias, carpopedal spasm, and seizures. Until the present, indomethacin has not been introduced and the patient remains free of electrolyte imbalances.

After a year of follow-up, there was a reduction of polyuria, stable GFR, gradual improvement of psychomotor development and growth, and plasma potassium and bicarbonate levels normalised. Despite the hyperkalaemia detected during the first week of life, it could have been confused with hypoaldosteronism or pseudohypoaldosteronism type I, the presence of a normal blood pressure was consentaneous with type II ABS. He had several complications in the neonatal period acute renal failure, sepsis, intestinal perforation and resectionwith hyponatraemia and hypokalaemia, requiring transient supplements of sodium and potassium chloride, but after this period electrolyte imbalances were not found.
