Abstract: Bartter's syndrome (BS) is an incurable genetic disease, with variable response to supportive therapy relating to fluid and electrolyte management. Poor control or therapy non-compliance may result in frequent life threatening episodes of dehydration, acidosis and hypokalemia, with resultant adverse effects on patient quality of life (QOL). We report, for the first time, pre-emptive bilateral native nephrectomies and successful renal transplantation, prior to the onset of ESRD, for sev...

Inzicht in de onderliggende fysiologische processen maakt het mogelijk om zeldzame, iatrogene verwikkelingen te duiden. Dit illustreren we aan de hand van drie observaties bij pasgeborenen bij wie een verstoord prostaglandine-evenwicht telkens aan de basis lag van bijzondere verwikkelingen: (1) pseudo-Bartter-syndroom tijdens het toedienen van alprostadil (pge1), (2) symptomatische ductus Botalli en anurie na maternale furosemide-abusus, en (3) renale insufficientie na toedienen van indometacine...

Bartter syndrome is an autosomic recessive disease characterized by severe polyuria and sodium renal loss. The responsible genes encode proteins involved in electrolyte tubular reabsorption. Prenatal manifestations, mainly recurrent polyhydramnios because of fetal polyuria, lead to premature delivery. After birth, polyuria leads to life-threatening dehydration. Prenatal genetic diagnosis needs an index case. The aim of this study was to analyze amniotic fluid biochemistry for the prediction of B...

The story, described here in detail, started in 1962 with the publication of a seminal paper by Frederic Bartter et al. in the December issue of the American Journal of Medicine. The authors reported two pediatric patients with hitherto undescribed features, namely growth and developmental delay associated with hypokalemic alkalosis and normal blood pressure despite high aldosterone production. It soon became clear that this condition was not so exceptional. The syndrome named after Bartter was ...

The case of an infant with both Bartter syndrome and cholelithiasis is presented. We felt that this association of two rare diseases might not be coincidental, thus prompting us to publish this report. Typically, patients affected with Bartter exhibit marked urinary excretion of electrolytes associated with polyuria and, consequently, are prone to develop dehydration [5]. On the other hand, cholelithiasis is a rarely reported condition in infants [4], and several predisposing factors for this co...

The aim of this investigation was to evaluate bone mineral density (BMD), by use of DXA, and bone turnover, in patients with Bartter syndrome (BS). Ten patients (2 with BS type II and 8 with BS type III) were included in the procedure. Age at study varied between 2 and 30 years. During the studies usual treatment with indomethacin, spironolactone, and potassium chloride was maintained. Results were compared with those obtained in the 20 asymptomatic parents. Height of the patients at the time of...

A case of neonatal Bartter syndrome is reported. The baby born pre-term following a pregnancy complicated by polyhydramnios, presented at 7 months of age with failure to thrive, gastroenteritis and facial dysmorphisms. An unusual feature was the absence of the classical biochemical abnormality of hypochloremic alkalosis early in the course of the disease. Metabolic acidosis was the initial manifestation at 5 weeks of age. Awareness of this presentation is important to avoid delay in diagnosis an...

Purpose : Bartter syndrome is a renal tubular defect in electrolyte transport characterized by hypokalemia, metabolic alkalosis and other clinical signs and symptoms. The aims of this study were to analyze the clinical manifestations and the short- and long-term outcomes of Bartter syndrome. Methods : We retrospectively reviewed clinical history, laboratory finding of blood and urine, renal ultrasonography, and hearing tests of five patients who were diagnosed and managed with Bartter syndrome a...
