Loss of Consciousness and Hypokalemia in an Elderly Man with a Mutation of the Thiazide-sensitive Na-Cl Cotransporter Gene
An 80-year-old man was referred to our department for evaluation of repetitive loss of consciousness and faintness with hypokalemia. He had relatively low blood pressure, hypomagnesemia, hypocalciuria and chondrocalcinosis in the knee, clinically suggesting Gitelman's syndrome. A renal clearance study could not be carried out due to the patient's age and complications of the heart. Sequence analysis of the gene of thiazide-sensitive Na-Cl cotransporter (TSC) showed a heterozygous missensedoi:10.1507/endocrj.k06-076 pmid:16966826 fatcat:iwvsff4lqzdqdfq3jynsprm5f4
