Although medullary nephrocalcinosis is uncommon in children, symptoms of primary distal renal tubular acidosis, a typical cause of medullary nephrocalcinosis during childhood, may start early in life. Nephrocalcinosis develops later, however. A 1-month-old baby with medullary nephrocalcinosis secondary to distal renal tubular acidosis is described here. Ultrasonography was useful in the diagnosis of this case.
