ABSTRACT
The authors previously reported a new syndrome, angiotensin-converting enzyme dysfunction syndrome (ACEDS), which is clinically characterized by mild systemic hypertension, a hypokalemic alkalosis, and hyperreninism with a high concentration of angiotensin-I (ANG-I), a normal angiotensin-II (ANG-II) value, and a normal aldosterone level. In the present study, they investigated the diagnosis and differentiation of diseases concomitant with hyperreninism, such as ACEDS, Bartter's syndrome, familial periodic paralysis, and renovascular hypertension treated with captopril for two months, and discussed the pathogenesis of ACEDS.

    H+-K+-ATPase (HKA) is composed of two different subunits: an alpha and a beta subunit. Previous studies have shown that in the kidney gastric HKA (HKA alpha 1) predominates under normal dietary conditions while colonic HKA (HKA alpha 2) predominates under potassium depleted conditions [1]. The...
