Abstract
Dent's disease is an X-linked renal tubular disorder characterized by low molecular weight proteinuria, hypercalciuria and nephrocalcinosis or nephrolithiasis. The disease is caused by mutations in a renal chloride channel gene, CLCN5. We report on three boys, of Indian origin, with Dent's disease that presented at an early age (1-4 years), with polyuria, polydipsia, salt craving, recurrent vitamin A-responsive night blindness, hypophosphataemic rickets, hypercalciuria and low molecular weight proteinuria. All these patients were found to have novel mutations in the CLCN5 gene.
