We describe a case of neonatal bartter syndrome with mild impairment of renal function for whom captopril started to promote better growth but she presented later with clinical and laboratory signs of exacerbation of renal impairment which were significantly resolved after discontinuing captopril.

In patients with Bartter syndrome and underlying renal dysfunction angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors should be used with caution and low dose
