Refractory rickets caused by mild distal renal tubular acidosis

, : Refractory rickets caused by mild distal renal tubular acidosis. Annals of Pediatric Endocrinology & Metabolism 18(3): 152-155

Type I (distal) renal tubular acidosis (RTA) is a disorder associated with the failure to excrete hydrogen ions from the distal renal tubule. It is characterized by hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis, an abnormal increase in urine pH, reduced urinary excretion of ammonium and bicarbonate ions, and mild deterioration in renal function. Hypercalciuria is common in distal RTA because of bone resorption, which increases as a buffer against metabolic acidosis. This can result in intractable rickets. We describe a case of distal RTA with nephrocalcinosis during follow-up of rickets in a patient who presented with clinical manifestations of short stature, failure to thrive, recurrent vomiting, dehydration, and irritability.

Fifty-six inbred lines of dent corn, Zea mays L., that are primarily adapted to the U.S. corn belt, were bioassayed for their resistance to kernel oviposition by the maize weevil, Sitophilus zeamais Motschulsky. A wide range of resistance to ovipo...
