Nephrologic symptoms were conspicuous: decreased clearance, increased serum creatinine and urea nitrogen level, restricted ability of concentration, damage of renal acidification; slight nephrocalcinosis shown histologically. The serum calcium level and calcium excretion became normal under the treatment with hydrochlorothiazide and prednisolone.
