Case Study
The article describes the case of a Korean boy with Bartter syndrome due to a homozygous Bartter syndrome sensorineural deafness (BSND) who was born at 32 weeks of gestation by cesarean section because of severe polyhydramnios and fetal distress. The patient presented with severe perinatal symptoms followed by a relatively benign course with preserved renal function after early infancy. The clinical and laboratory features of the patient were compared with those of previously reported cases with the same mutation.
