Abstract

We report on a 4-month-old girl with congenital hypodipsic hypernatremia resulting from decreased sensitivity of the hypothalamic osmoreceptors with increased tonicity in association wiht hyperlipemia and cleft lip and cleft palate. We postulate that the link among these various derangements is hypothalamic dysfunction.
