Abstract
Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus is a disorder characterized by polydipsia and polyuria resulting from failure of the renal tubules and collecting ducts to respond to antidiuretic hormone despite elevated blood levels of antidiuretic hormone. We experienced a case of nephrogenic diabetes insipidus in 13 months-old girl probably secondary to vesicoureteral reflux grade IV. The clinical manifestations were extreme thirst, polydipsia and polyuria. Family history was nonspecific and laboratory findings revealed urinary concentration defect by water deprivation test and pitressin test. But urinalysis revealed normal specific gravity. Vesicoureteral reflux was corrected by ureteroneocystostomy. In conclusion, when patient complaints of polydipsia and polyuria, water deprivation test and pitressin test are mandatory even urinary specific gravity is within normal limit.
Key Words: Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus, Vesicoureteral reflux, Urinary tract infection
