We present the case of a ten-year-old girl diagnosed with bilateral nephrocalcinosis after a radiological study requested for suspected scoliosis. The initial blood test and urine test guided us to the diagnosis of the rare disease called familial hypomagnesemia syndrome with hypercalciuria and nephrocalcinosis. The genetic diagnosis requested in the hospital confirms the diagnosis and allows to start the treatment.
