Background/aims: Pseudohypoaldosteronism Type 1 (PHA1) is a rare heterogeneous syndrome characterized by severe salt loss, hyperkalemia, hyponatremia, metabolic acidosis, hyperaldosteronism and hyperreninemia. Multi-system form of PHA1 is caused by mutations in one of the genes encoding the alpha, beta and gamma subunits of epithelial sodium channels (ENaC). In this study, we presented a novel splice site mutation in the beta-gene of ENaC in a patient with multi-system PHA.
