The molecular study revealed a genetic mutation in ClC-Kb, confirming that it was the classic form of Bartter syndrome. At 11 months, the child was referred to the nephrology unit due to persistence of clinical symptoms associated with metabolic alkalosis pH 7.

As Bartter syndrome is an autossomal recessive disorder, genetic counselling should be offered to the batter. Additional information Further information on this enfermwdad Classification s 4 Gene s 1 Other website s 0.

Hypocalcaemia may be asymptomatic or associated with paresthesias, carpopedal spasm, and seizures. Unexplained metabolic alkalosis and hypokalemia: Early treatment improves prognosis.

Int J Pediatr ; doi: A premature newborn male was born at 31 weeks and 3 days of gestation. Later on, short stature, failure to thrive, nephrocalcinosis and hypercalciuria were detected.

Table 1 Laboratory tests on Nephrology Unit admission. Acta Med Port ;24 Suppl 3: The newborn was discharged on the 6 th week of 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.

Classic Bartter syndrome: a rare cause of failure to thrive in a child

Only comments seeking to improve the quality and accuracy of information on the Orphanet website are accepted. On the other hand, we also observed transient hyperkalemia that may be also occur in type II ABS 1,3,7.

The resulting hypokalaemia 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. The birth weight of the infant was g, which was appropriate for gestational age. Blood pressure is typically normal.


Bartter syndrome with hypocalcemia is a type of Bartter syndrome see this term characterized by hypocalcemia, hypomagnesemia and hypoparathyroidism along with features of Henle’s loop dysfunction polyuria, hypokalemic alkalosis, increased levels of plasma renin and aldosterone, low blood pressure and vascular resistance to angiotensin II.

Our case report presented all those features. Abstract Bartter syndrome is a group of rare autosomal-recessive disorders caused by a defect in distal tubule transport of sodium and chloride.

Laboratory examination typically reveals low plasma chloride concentrations, decreased plasma sodium concentration and severe hypokalaemic alkalosis. Prenatal ultrasounds and foetal echocardiography were unremarkable, as well as maternal serologies and glucose tolerance test. There are two distinct clinical presentations: Long-term outcome including mental development is usually normal 3. Blood gases revealed hypochloraemic metabolic alkalosis, hyponatraemia and hypokalaemia.

Gastrointestinal side effects such as gastritis and peptic ulcers are the main drawbacks of prolonged indomethacin therapy. 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. The fractional urinary excretion of sodium, potassium and chloride were increased and hyperreninaemic hyperaldosteronism was observed.

A pure defect of salt reabsorption along the DCT1 due to dysfunction of neutral thiazide-sensitive sodium chloride co-transporter finally results in the Gitelman syndrome.

Detailed information Article for general public Svenska Unfortunately, in barhter case, despite having performed amniodrainage, biochemical analysis of the amniotic fluid, which would have led to an early diagnosis, was not made.

The investigation revealed negative allergology study, normal sweat test, negative antitransglutaminase antibody, abdominal and kidney ultrasound without changes, including nephrocalcinosis and endoscopy with incompetent cardia and normal intestinal biopsy. Spontaneous delivery enfer,edad at 31 weeks gestation, made through caesarean section because of breech presentation.

She began therapy with potassium chloride supplementation and indomethacin. Specialised Social Services Eurordis directory. The majority of children with a timely and appropriate therapy have clinical improvement and catch up growth.

Nephron Physiol ; We wanted to leave a word of caution, namely to obstetricians and paediatricians as to the importance enfermedsd making a complete and careful clinical history, because ABS manifestations can be neglected and mislead by the diagnosis of prematurity.


First Edition Philadelphia, PA: Renal biopsy is generally not an indication for the diagnosis of Bartter syndrome. Devuyst O, Pirson Y. We herein present a case of ABS whose diagnosis was early suspected due to familial and prenatal history. Check this box if you wish to receive a copy of your message. The definitive diagnosis is performed with molecular analysis. Exact prevalence of Bartter syndrome with hypocalcemia is not known with very few patients so far described.

Health care resources for this disease Expert centres Diagnostic tests 29 Patient organisations 34 Orphan drug s 1. His older brother, also born preterm, had nephrocalcinosis and hypercalciuria attributed to prematurity and its complications. Como citar este artigo. Discussion Phenotype is very variable in the classic Bartter syndrome, and more than half of the patients are diagnosed within the first year of life. The renal ultrasound at D3 was normal and at D36 was suggestive of macroscopic nephrocalcinosis both renal sinuses had hyper-reflected spots enfermead at 8 months medullary nephrocalcinosis was confirmed the medullary pyramids were hyperechoic, bilaterally, and cortical thickness was preserved with no signs of hydronephrosis.

On follow up, failure to thrive was observed, with an evolution for height and weight under percentile 3 badtter on the World Health Organization WHO child growth charts.

Antenatal Bartter syndrome results from disturbed salt reabsorption along the thick ascending limb of Henle TAL due to defects bratter 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 ion channel genes. The child presented with early failure to thrive less than the third percentile and severe regurgitation. Although the molecular enfemedad was not performed, he started indomethacin and potassium supplement, improving his appetite and weight.
