Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A family with genetic hypouricemia due to isolated renal tubular abnormality in urate handling is reported. Urinary urate excretion was decreased by 61% following administration of pyrazinamide, and increased by 25% following administration of probenecid. The responses to these drugs suggest genotype heterogeneity of renal hypouricemia in man.
