Conorenal syndrome or Saldino Mainzer is a rare hereditary disease characterized by cone-shaped epiphyses of the phalanges, retinitis pigmentosa and renal manifestations (nephropathy). Case report: Herein we report an eight years old girl with a collection of signs and symptoms compatible with conorenal syndrome. She first presented with dactylitis, dysuria, frequency, discolored urine and progressive generalized edema. Renal biopsy revealed tubular atrophy, interstitial fibrosis and thickening of the glomerular basement membrane. This constellation of signs and symptoms is compatible with conorenal syndrome.
