Intern Med 2018 Dec 10;57(24):3603-3610. Epub 2018 Aug 10.

Department of Nephrology, Osaka University Graduate School of Medicine, Japan.

We present a case of Dent disease caused by a novel intronic mutation, 1348-1G>A, of the chloride voltage-gated channel 5 (CLCN5) gene. Cultured proximal tubule cells obtained from the patient showed impaired acidification of the endosome and/or lysosome, indicating that the 1348-1G>A mutation was indeed the cause of Dent disease. Although the prevalence of osteomalacia in Dent disease is low in Japan, several factors-including poor medication adherence-caused severe osteomalacia in the current case. Read More
