Eight boys aged 2–12 weeks with urinary tract malformations (UTMs) exhibited features of transient type 1 pseudo-hypoaldosteronism (TPHA1) in the course of urinary tract infection (UTI). Hyponatremia (120.9 ± 5.8 mmol/l), hyperkalemia (6.9 ± 0.9 mmol/l), metabolic acidosis (plasma bicarbonate 11 ± 1.4 mmol/l), and a rise in serum creatinine levels (145 ±(More)
OBJECTIVE Assessment of the first febrile urinary tract infection (UTI) in children has been the subject of debate for many years. Diagnosis of acute pyelonephritis (APN) is usually based on clinical and biological data. The clinical usefulness of early Tc-99m DMSA scintigraphy remains controversial, although it may influence the type and duration of(More)
BACKGROUND Growth retardation is one of the most visible comorbid conditions of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in children. To our knowledge, published data on longitudinal follow-up of growth in pediatric patients with CKD is lacking from the region of South-East Europe. Herein we report the results from the Serbian Pediatric Registry of Chronic Kidney(More)
Renal tubular acidosis (RTA) is common in adults with primary Sjogren syndrome (pSS) but to date this condition has only been identified in 12 pediatric cases of pSS. Here we present the case of a 13-year-old, otherwise asymptomatic girl in whom the search for the etiology of incidentally found nephrocalcinosis led to diagnosis of distal RTA and nephrogenic(More)
BACKGROUND The epidemiological information from well-defined populations regarding childhood chronic kidney disease (CKD), particularly those concerning non-terminal stages, are scanty. The epidemiology of CKD in children is often based on renal replacement therapy (RRT) data, which means that a considerable number of children in earlier stages of CKD are(More)
INTRODUCTION Congenital nephrotic syndrome is usually presented with heavy proteinuria, hypoproteinaemia, oedema and hyperlipidaemia in a child from its birth until the age of 3 months. Aetiology of the disease is mutation in the relevant gene or it develops secondary to various infections. The most common form of congenital nephrotic syndrome is caused by(More)
INTRODUCTION Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in paediatric population. OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was analysis of aetiology, staging and associated complications of CKD at the time of diagnosis. METHODS Data of 97 patients (56 boys) of average age 7.8 +/- 5.8 years, referred for the first time to the(More)
INTRODUCTION Infants with urinary tract malformations (UTM) presenting with urinary tract infection (UTI) are prone to develop transient type 1 pseudohypoaldosteronism (THPA1). OBJECTIVE Report on patient series with characteristics of THPA1, UTM and/or UTI and suggestions for the diagnosis and therapy. METHODS Patients underwent blood and urine(More)
INTRODUCTION The group of autosomal dominant disorders - Epstein syndrome, Sebastian syndrome, Fechthner syndrome and May-Hegglin anomaly - are characterised by thrombocytopenia with giant platelets, inclusion bodies in granulocytes and variable levels of deafness, disturbances of vision and renal function impairment. A common genetic background of these(More)
