Objectives Multisystem pseudohypoaldosteronism (PHA) is a rare autosomal recessive aldosterone unresponsiveness syndrome that results from mutations in the genes encoding epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) subunits alpha, beta and gamma. In this study we examined three PHA patients to identify mutations responsible for PHA with different clinical presentations.
