Bartter syndrome with sensorineural deafness (type IV Bartter syndrome) is a subtype of this tubular disease, and is due to mutations in the BSND gene. Out of a population of 92 patients with Bartter syndrome, five suffered from mild to severe hypoacusia and were selected for mutational screening. A homozygous mutation in the BSND gene was found in two female patients. The first patient was found to have a substitution in intron 1 donor splice site at position +5 (c.420+5G>C), whereas the second patient has a homozygous 3G>A substitution leading to the loss of the start codon for the translation of the BSND mRNA.
