708 Possible Causes for Distal Renal Tubular Acidosis

  • Acidosis

    Distal renal tubular acidosis and the potassium enigma. Semin Nephrol. 2006 Nov;26(6):471-8.[] Other reasons for metabolic acidosis include – Kidney disease – with proximal or distal renal tubular acidosis Severe dehydration A high-fat plus low-carbohydrate diet Metabolic[] The term renal tubular acidosis (RTA) describes any one of a number of disorders, in which the excretion of fixed acid (distal RTA) or the reabsorption of filtered bicarbonate[]

  • Hashimoto's Thyroiditis

    Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) has been found to be associated with lymphoma, papillary carcinoma and Hürthle cell neoplasms of thyroid. In contrast, there are only a few reports of co-existence of HT with medullary carcinoma of thyroid. An overall prevalence of medullary carcinoma of only 0.35% has been reported in[…][]

  • Hydronephrosis

    Impaired concentrating ability or elevated urine pH (distal renal tubular acidosis) are also commonly found due to tubular stress and injury.[]

  • Sjogren's Syndrome

    Abstract Proton-secretory defect is thought to be a major pathophysiologic mechanism leading to classic distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA).[] Renal manifestations such as distal renal tubular acidosis have well been described in primary SS.[] Renal involvement, which is found in approximately 5% of patients, is usually associated with tubulointerstitial changes which frequently go along with distal renal tubular[]

  • Primary Hyperparathyroidism

    renal tubular acidosis.[] Distal renal tubular acidosis due to primary hyperparathyroidism is rarely reported.[] renal tubular acidosis manifesting with hypokalaemia and hypomagnesaemia.[]

  • Nephrocalcinosis

    Abstract A 9-year-old female child was initially diagnosed of having nephrocalcinosis with distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA) while investigating for short stature.[] To the Editor: Distal renal tubular acidosis (DRTA) is an acid-base balance disorder defined by the inability of the kidneys to compensate for the production of acids from[] renal tubular acidosis or medullary sponge kidney disease.[]

  • Multiple Myeloma

    A few cases of multiple myeloma with gastrointestinal bleeding have been reported, but hematemesis is rarely encountered as an initial symptom of multiple myeloma. Here we report a case of multiple myeloma with an initial symptom of hematemesis. Gastroscopy revealed ulceration in the angulus of the stomach.[…][]

  • Nonallergic Interstitial Nephritis

    This comprehensive textbook provides a broad reveiw of kidney diseases with regards to symptoms, investigation and treatment. It deals with a variety of clinical entities like glomerulonephritis, kidney stones, hypertension, urinary infection and renal failure. The in-depth chapters deal with dialysis and kidney[…][]

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    Abstract A 36-yr-old woman, G5P2, who had a background history of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) was found to have placenta previa and placenta accreta on second trimester ultrasound scan. She had previous 3 spontaneous miscarriages but there was no history of gynecologic interventions. Apart from SLE,[…][]

  • Sickle Cell Disease

    Medullary injury also causes reduced urine-concentrating ability and a mild form of (type IV) distal renal tubular acidosis.[]
