Genetic defects in tubule function, although relatively rare, have served as models for the study of the more common acquired renal tubular disorders. Defects in reabsorption or secretion or in hormone production or action are primarily involved. An exact physiologic mechanism has been delineated for some of them, leading to effective management of the associated renal dysfunction.
