Abstract

Bartter syndrome (BS) is a hereditary condition transmitted as an autosomal recessive (Bartter type 1 to 4) or dominant trait (Bartter type 5). The disease associates hypokalemic alkalosis with varying degrees of hypercalciuria. Here we report a patient presenting with recurrent episodes of muscle weakness, muscle cramps, carpopedal spasm with uncommon findings like hypomagnesemia, bilatelar nephrocalcinosis, hypocalcemia with secondary hyperparathyroidism and hyperuricemia, that was diagnosed as a case of Bartter syndrome.

 

Keywords: Bartter syndrome, hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia, nephrocalcinosis, hyperuricemia
