Renal involvement in osteo-onychodysplasia (nail-patella syndrome) has been well delineated. A family consisting of the father and his three daughters was investigated. The father presented with renal insufficiency (creatinine clearance, 10 ml/min) and proteinuria; the daughters were found to have 0 to 1 + proteinuria with normal creatinine clearance. Inulin and para-amino hippuric acid clearances were normal in the three daughters, whereas all showed a concentration defect with normal urinary acidification.
No abnormality could be found in amino acid excretion, but 24-hr urine levels of hydroxyproline were elevated. Findings on light microscopy in the early stages included local proliferative changes
