A likely pathophysiologic scenario in our case may have been that tacrolimus induced distal RTA led to nephrocalcinosis and therefore to secondary nephrogenic diabetes insipidus. Insufficient water intake in a diet with high renal solute load and further renal impairment due to enalapril treatment consequently resulted in an acute polyuric renal failure with severe hypernatremic dehydration.

For example, nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (NDI), the inability to produce concentrated urine, can result from several different malfunctions in the AQP2 system controlled by anti-diuretic hormone (ADH).
Another study found preliminary evidence that PDE-5 inhibition might relieve a rare kidney condition called nephrogenic diabetes insipidus. In the disease, cells fail to assemble a protein necessary for concentrating waste products, a condition that results in copious production of abnormally dilute urine.
