ABSTRACT
Ellis van Creveld syndrome (EVC) is a rare chrondro-ectodermal dysplasia. Renal abnormalities are found in few EVC cases with agenesis, dysplasia, megaureter and nephrocalcinosis. Rarely EVC syndrome is complicated with kidney failure and only one child required renal transplantation. We report a patient who was diagnosed with EVC syndrome at birth. He developed hypertension at age 15 and gradually progressed to chronic kidney disease stage 5 requiring hemodialysis and renal transplantation.
