The relationship between urine osmolality and plasma arginine vasopressin (AVP). Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (NDI) is characterized by renal tubular unresponsiveness to the antidiuretic hormone AVP or its antidiuretic analogue 1-desamino-8-D-arginine vasopressin (DDAVP). In both the congenital and acquired forms of this disorder the clinical picture is dominated by polyuria, polydipsia, and hyposthenuria despite often elevated AVP levels [17]. (From Robertson et al.
