WHAT IS DENT’S DISEASE?
Dent disease is a chronic kidney disorder that occurs almost exclusively in males. In affected individuals, kidney problems result from damage to structures called proximal tubules. Signs and symptoms of this condition appear in early childhood and worsen over time.
The most frequent sign of Dent disease is the presence of an abnormally large amount of proteins in the urine (tubular proteinuria).Other common signs of the disorder include excess calcium in the urine (hypercalciuria), calcium deposits in the kidneys (nephrocalcinosis), and kidney stones (nephrolithiasis).
