Paradoxical response to furosemide in uromodulin-associated kidney disease


Labriola, Laura; Olinger, Eric; Belge, Hendrica; Pirson, Yves; Dahan, Karin; Devuyst, Olivier (2015). Paradoxical response to furosemide in uromodulin-associated kidney disease. Nephrology, Dialysis, Transplantation, 30(2):330-335.

Abstract

Mutations in the UMOD gene coding for uromodulin cause autosomal dominant tubulointerstitial kidney disease. Uromodulin is known to regulate transport processes in the thick ascending limb, but it remains unknown whether UMOD mutations are associated with functional tubular alterations in the early phase of the disease. The responses to furosemide and to a water deprivation test were compared in a 32-year-old female patient carrying the pathogenic UMOD mutation p.C217G and her unaffected 31-year-old sister. A single dose of furosemide induced an intense headache with exaggerated decrease in blood pressure (Δsyst: 30 versus 20 mmHg; Δdiast: 18 versus 5 mmHg) and body weight (Δ2.6 kg versus Δ0.9 kg over 3 h) in the proband versus unaffected sib. The diuretic response and the fall in urine osmolality were also more important and detected earlier in the affected sib. Water deprivation led to increased plasma osmolality and urine concentration in both siblings; however, the response to desmopressin was attenuated in the affected sib. These data reveal that mutations of uromodulin cause specific transport alterations, including exaggerated response to furosemide and a failure to maximally concentrate urine, in the early phase of the disease.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
