Alport syndrome is a hereditary disorder characterized by renal impairment, hearing loss, and ocular symptoms and is caused by COL4A3, COL4A4, and COL4A5 mutations. Here, we report the case of 3-year-old boy with isolated hematuria detected in routine preventative urinary screening conducted in 3-year-old children. He carried a novel variant, NM_033380.3:c. 1032 + 1 G > A, which caused a splicing abnormality in COL4A5. He was diagnosed with X-linked Alport syndrome.
