Osteomalacia in a Case of Adult-Onset Bartter Syndrome
KeywordsBartter syndrome, metabolic alkalosis, hypokalemia, hypocalcemia, osteomalacia, CaSR
Bartter syndrome is a rare heterogeneous disease characterised by a deficiency in sodium and chloride absorption. Gain-of-function mutations in the CASR gene have been described in some patients with Bartter syndrome associated with hypocalcaemia and hypercalciuria. We describe a case of adult-onset Bartter syndrome with hypocalcaemia severe enough to cause osteomalacia.
