Answer

This syndrome was described as being like Bartter syndrome, except that renal histology showed normal juxtaglomerular apparatus and changes to the proximal tubules. Although the locus for the gene associated with Gullner syndrome showed linkage to the HLA-A and HLA-B genes, its identity is still unknown.
