A 9-year-old female child was initially diagnosed of having nephrocalcinosis with distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA) while investigating for short stature. She later on developed features of nephrotic syndrome (NS) while on treatment for RTA. Investigation for the cause of NS revealed very strong serological evidence in favor of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Histopathological confirmation could not be done due to bilateral severely contracted kidneys. There are a few case reports of dRTA as the presentation of SLE, but nephrocalcinosis with dRTA with subsequent manifestation of SLE has hitherto not been reported in literature.
