Background: PHA1 is a rare inherited disease characterized by resistance to aldosterone action and distinguished in two forms: the autosomal dominant renal form caused by mutations of the NR3C2 gene (MR) and the autosomal recessive systemic form caused by mutations of the subunit genes SCNN1A, SCNN1B, SCNN1G of the epithelial sodium channel (ENaC). The classic phenotype of the autosomal recessive form of PHA1 is usually severe, lifelong, and expressed with mu...
