Pseudohyperkalemia, Familial, 2, Due To Red Cell Leak; Pshk2


'Familial pseudohyperkalemia' (PSHK) is a term that was coined to describe conditions in which a patient presents with pseudohyperkalemia as a result of a temperature-based abnormality in the transport of potassium (K) and sodium (Na) across the red cell membrane, in association with essentially normal hematology. PSHK can be considered to be the clinically benign, nonhemolytic cousin of hereditary stomatocytic leaky-cell, congenital hemolytic anemias (see {194380}) (summary by Gore et al., 2002).For a discussion of clinical and genetic heterogeneity of the hereditary stomatocytoses, see {194380}.
