Abstract

Bisalbuminemia is a rarely encountered anomaly characterized by presence of bifid albumin bands or a single widened albumin band in electrophoretogram. Inherited bisalbuminemia is quite rare and inherited as an autosomal dominant form. The acquired form of bisalbuminemia is usually transient and may be observed during long term beta lactam antibiotic therapy, acute pancreatitis, myeloma and nephrotic syndrome. This is a case of bisalbuminemia in 61-year-old diabetic female with hypothyroidism came with acute exacerbation of bronchial asthma.
