Özet

Cystic fibrosis is an autosomal recessive inherited generalized disorder of exocrine gland function that results in abnormal mucus production. There is a tendency in infants with cystic fibrosis to develop episodes of hyponatremic, hypochloremic dehydration with metabolic alkalosis and elevated plasma renin and aldosterone levels which are the biochemical picture of the pseudo-Bartter's syndrome, Here in, we report a 48 day old boy with Pseudo-Bartter's syndrome associated with cystic fibrosis and we emphasized the importance of the salt supplementation in these patients.
