Synopsis

A rare secondary disorder of electrolyte equilibrium defined as a state of resistance to aldosterone in renal tubules. Typically develops in infants but may occur in any age group following urinary tract infections, urinary tract abnormalities, or renal transplant. Patients experience hyponatremia from the severe volume depletion of urinary salt wasting, hyperkalemia, hydronephrosis, metabolic acidosis, and weight loss. Plasma aldosterone levels may be normal or elevated, and renin levels are elevated.

Treatment involves eliminating the underlying cause and providing supportive care for the associated electrolyte disturbances.
