Renal tubular acidosis (RTA) is a disorder that impairs renal acid-base regulation leading to normal anion gap metabolic acidosis. It is rare to encounter this entity during pregnancy. Pregnancy can worsen renal tubular acidosis (RTA) due to the physiological changes that happen during pregnancy. Teamwork including nephrologist and obstetrician is very important to identify and properly manage pregnant women with RTA to ensure smooth pregnancy and prevent complications.
