Abstract

Dehydration with multiple salt abnormalities is frequently encountered in the paediatric emergency department, during acute illnesses complicated by loss of body fluids. Metabolic alkalosis is not a common finding in dehydrated children. The presence of unusual electrolyte unbalance, such as metabolic alkalosis, hyponatremia, hypochloremia and hypokalemia, without evidence of renal tubular defects, is named as pseudo-Bartter syndrome. It can occur in several clinical settings and, in infancy, it is described as a potential complication of cystic fibrosis. We report a case of pseudo-Bartter syndrome representing the onset of cystic fibrosis in childhood.
