We report on a three-generation family (daughter, mother, and maternal grandmother) with a syndrome of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone (SIADH)-like condition in the absence of inappropriate ADH secretion. In the three females, a water load test showed severely reduced urinary water excretion, with the ratio of urine volume to the loaded water being 10-33% (normal value: 70.2±7.8%). Urinary AQP2 excretion was normal, as was the DNA sequence of AVPR2 and AQP2. The results suggest the presence of a new dominantly inherited disorder for tubular water resorption.
