Primary polydipsia in a family with a known mutation in the AVP gene

Casey Ruth , Hannon Anne Marie , Joyce Caroline , O'Connell Susan , O'Halloran Domhnall

Diabetes insipidus is characterised clinically by the inappropriate production of large volumes of dilute urine, even in the presence of clinical dehydration or depravation of water. DI occurs either due to deficiency or insufficiency of arginine vasopressin (AVP) hormone production. The gold standard test remains the water deprivation test. Hereditary DI accounts for <10% of all cases.We present a family with a known heterozygous missense mutation, ...

Most aldosterone-producing adenomas (APAs) have gain-of-function somatic mutations of ion channels or transporters. However, their frequency in aldosterone-producing cell-clusters of normal adrenals could suggest the existence of co-driver mutations which influence the development or phenotype of APAs [1]. Gain-of-function mutations in both CTNNB1 and the G-protein coupled receptor GNA11 were found by whole exome sequencing in 3/10 APAs. Further sequencing of...
