Abstract A 14-year-old female patient with metastatic carcinoid developed streptozocin-induced glomerular, proximal, and distal tubular dysfunction. The latter was in the form of nephrogenic diabetes insipidus, with urine volumes in excess of 11 L/24 h. The prostaglandin synthetase inhibitor, indomethacin, rapidly corrected the polyuria both initially and on rechallenge, independent of change in glomerular filtration rate.
