Abstract

Renal tubular acidosis (RTA) is a disorder of renal acidification of urine due to defective functioning of nephrons. It can be associated with several disease entities including some autoimmune syndromes. We report here a case in which distal RTA is associated with biopsy confirmed polymyositis (PM). So far there is only one case report regarding this association.

Index words: renal tubular acidosis; polymyositis; hypokalaemia
