Renal sonography in Bartter syndrome

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Bartter syndrome is an uncommon condition characterized by growth failure, juxtaglomerular cell hyperplasia, hypokalemia, increased plasma renin and aldosterone levels, but no hypertension. Since Bartter first described the clinical symptoms and electrolyte disturbances associated with this condition in 1962, nearly 200 individual cases have been documented, although it now appears that some of these patients may belong to a broader spectrum of disease processes. Changes seen on excretory urography have been reported in several patients, and nephrocalcinosis has been demonstrated on sonography. This paper describes sonographic findings not previously reported in two patients with Bartter syndrome.
