Renal tubular acidosis is a known clinical entity, in which type I distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA type I), also known as classical dRTA, is second most common type after dRTA type IV. We report 21-year-old female presenting as polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (VT), which on evaluation was found to have the type I dRTA with idiopathic etiology. Polymorphic VT as presentation of type I dRTA has not been reported in the literature in human beings so far but has been reported in animal models.
