2 Possible Causes for Severe Hypernatremia in Neonatal Period

  • Hyperchloremia

  • Nephrogenic Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuresis

    Affected males are often symptomatic in the neonatal period with a lack of weight gain, dehydration and hypernatremia but mild phenotypes may also occur.[gdr3545.com] Females carrying the mutation may be asymptomatic but, sometimes, severe polyuria is found due to the random X chromosome inactivation.[gdr3545.com]
