Abstract

OBJECTIVE Anti-carbonic anhydrase II (anti-CA II) antibodies have been related to renal manifestations of primary SS (pSS), and animal studies have even suggested a pathogenic role for them. However, not all pSS patients with renal tubular acidosis (RTA) present with anti-CA II antibodies. Recently, several novel CA isoenzymes have been recognized and we… (More)
