Adipsia is a disease characterized by the absence of thirst even in the It is a rare condition that typically presents as hypernatremic dehydration. We describe two sisters with chronic hypernatremia, lack of thirst, and inappropriate osmoregulated vasopressin secretion. Only one sister, who presented with. Adipsia, also known as hypodipsia, is a symptom of inappropriately decreased or absent . Type A (essential hypernatremia syndrome) involves an increase of the level in which solvent molecules can pass through cell membranes (osmotic.

We attempted to identify the specific antigens of the autoantibodies in the three patients, but all attempts failed, suggesting that these antigen molecules are not abundant in the SFO Sign in to hypernatreima your search Sign in to your personal account.

There is debate over whether osmoreceptor resetting could lead to the increase in threshold. Patients with CDI can replace urinary water loss through the oral intake of fluid.

After a certain degree of dehydration has been reached, the volume receptors respond, leading to a release of AVP and the maintenance of clinical hypernatremia with concentrated urine. Obesity, growth hormone and weight loss.

InHiyama et al. Both serum osmolality and ADH maintain normal ranges of serum osmolality. Patients with adipsic DI feel no thirst and therefore have no urge to replace fluids.


The efferent projections of the subfornical organ of the rat: Infobox medical hypetnatremia new. The presence of normal thirst in these patients, with polydipsia if undertreated, was suggestive of probable CDI without hypothalamic adipsic hypernatremia syndrome.

Adipsic hypernatremia in a patient with pseudotumor cerebri and the primary empty sella syndrome.

Other midline craniofacial abnormalities were identified in four patients. All lack a blood-brain barrier and contain receptors for many substances that circulate in the blood During the median follow-up period of 7.

While cases with no hypothalamic-pituitary structural lesion have been reported, their etiology has not been elucidated.

Recurrent hypernatremia; a proposed mechanism in a patient with absence of thirst and abnormal excretion of water. Intracranial injection hypernatrenia Ang II causes increased water and salt intake Three CVOs form a sensory interface between the blood and brain: Figure A is modified from In the future, more detailed mechanisms and clinical findings will aid development and selection of new clinical strategies.

Ab, patient 1; Ac, normal optic nerve arrow. All patients htpernatremia with neonatal CDI in a university hospital-based observational study and followed between and were included and analyzed retrospectively.

The other two were idiopathic cases. The renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system RAAS is an important regulator of fluid balance Annu Rev Nutr ; 2: Diabetes insipidus associated with symptomatic congenital cytomegalovirus infection.

Ghrelin induces adiposity in rodents. J Clin Endocrinol Metab ; In this case, desmopressin helps the kidneys to promote reabsorption of water. Oxford University Press; Retrieved from ” https: Only one sister, who presented with microcephaly and developmental delay, showed signs of dysplasia of the midline structures ie, septum pellucidum and corpus callosum and a large intracranial cyst.


Plasma sodium concentrations during follow-up in 12 patients treated with DDAVP for neonatal CDI or adipsic DI, as a function of the frequency of normal and abnormal results for natremia, for each patient. The specific details and mechanism of each feature are described here:. High proportion of pituitary abnormalities and other congenital defects in children with congenital nasal pyriform aperture stenosis. It is associated with greater morbidity and a high risk of developing both hypernatremia and hyponatremia, due to the condition itself or secondary to treatment with vasopressin analogs or fluid administration.

Vasopressin and thirst in patients with posterior pituitary ectopia and hypopituitarism. Initial test results may be suggestive of diabetes insipidus.

Only two patients in our study had isolated idiopathic neonatal CDI, suggesting that this isolated condition is much rarer in infancy than later in life 57.

The AVP release in this subtype occurs with normally functioning levels of hhypernatremia. In our case series, optic nerve hypoplasia, with or without SOD, was the most common underlying diagnosis. Recently, we reported three patients with adipsic hypernatremia whose serum-derived immunoglobulin Ig specifically reacted with mouse subfornical organ SFO tissue.
