Abstract

Objectives: Congenital nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (NDI) is a rare hereditary disorder which is characterized by unresponsiveness to arginine vasopressin (AVP) in collecting ducts and leads to polyuria and polydipsia. The wide clinical spectrum of congenital NDI can cause difficulties in early diagnosis. We aimed to evaluate clinical prognosis of children with congenital NDI in long-term period.
