We observed two patients who had hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis as well as hypomagnesemia and hypocalciuria with elevated serum renin levels. In renal clearance studies in our patients using furosemide or thiazide, urine volume and chloride clearance (CCI) were increased after furosemide administration but not after thiazide administration. Furthermore, the distal fractional chloride reabsorption [CH2O/(CH2O + CCI)] was dramatically decreased by furosemide administration in our patients… CONTINUE READING
