To the Editor: Although distal renal tubular acidosis is often associated with immune-mediated diseases, autoantibodies against renal tubular cells have been detected only sporadically.13 We report the case of a 34-year-old woman with Graves' hyperthyroidism and distal renal tubular acidosis whose serum contained antibodies to renal collecting-duct cells.
