    We report four cases of Bartter's syndrome in two consecutive generations of an Irish family. Diagnoses were made on the basis of characteristic clinical features, blood and urine biochemistry with additional evidence from renal biopsy in one case. The aetiology, treatment and inheritance of the syndrome are discussed.
