Abstract
Bartter's syndrome is a renal rubular disorder characterized by hypokalemia, metabolic alkalosis, increased urinary excretion of potassium and prostaglandins, a relative vascular resistance to the Dresser effects of exogenous angiotensin II, and hyperplasia of the juxtaglomerular apparatus. In most patients, the glomerular filtration rate is normal and chronic renal failure does not develop. We report here on a case of living-related kidney transplantation in Bartter's syndrome, in which a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug is suspected to be the cause of the end-stage renal disease.
