Özet

Gitelman syndrome (GS) is transmitted as an autosomal recessive trait and characterized by hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis in combination with significant hypomagnesemia and low urinary calcium excretion. The symptoms and severity of the disease can vary greatly from one person to another and can range from mild to severe. Sudden cardiac arrest has been reported occasionally as well. Here, for the first time, we reported a 34-year-old pregnant GS woman who was diagnosed to have hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy during her cardiac examination for the complaints of palpitation and presyncope.
