An Unusual Cause Of Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis

Dr. Pooja Pradeep, Dr. Krithika Ap

Abstract :

We report an unusual case of 8-yrs-old girl presenting with recurrent episodic weakness with documented hypokalemia, polyuria and failure to thrive. The child was finally diagnosed as having distal renal tubular acidosis. Imaging studies revealed associated hypoechoic spaces in renal medulla. Long term treatment with alkali and maintenance of normokalemia lead to regression of these morphological changes.

Keywords :
