Decoding Hypercalcemia and Renal Stones in a Young Adult: Could it be Dent's Disease?

Dent's disease is a rare genetic kidney disorder characterized by proximal tubular dysfunction, nephrocalcinosis, recurrent nephrolithiasis, and chronic kidney disease. Hypercalcemia is a rare finding in this disease. In this report, we present a case of possible Dent's disease in a young adult male with hypercalcemia and chronic kidney disease. The diagnosis was evoked based on the presence of low-molecular-weight proteinuria, kidney stones, and renal failure. This case underscores the significance of considering Dent's disease as a potential diagnosis, even in patients with chronic renal disease who exhibit hypercalcemia. It also emphasizes the importance of regular monitoring and management of patients with this condition to prevent further complications.
