Hypercalciuria and nephrocalcinosis, a feature of Wilson's disease.
Publication types: Case Reports ; Journal Article
Hypercalciuria and nephrocalcinosis are not uncommon in patients with Wilson's disease but have only once been reported as the presenting sign. We diagnosed Wilson's disease in a 17-year-old male patient 6 years after his first episode of gross hematuria and 2 years after detection of hypercalciuria and nephrocalcinosis. Therapy with penicillamine resulted only in a moderate reduction of urinary calcium excretion but oxalate excretion increased.
