Abstract

We report an association of renal tubular acidosis (RTA) in two children with glucose-galactose malabsorption (GGM), who were found to have nephrocalcinosis. Although GGM has been reported previously with nephrocalcinosis, this report is the first to show that renal tubular acidosis could explain the coexistence of nephrocalcinosis in patients with glucose galactose malabsorption.
