Brown tumors, or osteoclastomas, are erosive bony lesions arising as a complication of hyperparathyroidism (HPT). In patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), brown tumors are classic skeletal manifestations usually seen in severe forms of secondary HPT. However, involvement of the spine is considered extremely rare. We report a long-term hemodialysis(More)

We report 4 cases, seen in the nephrology department, concerning women aged from 18 to 35 years who had tried to commit suicide by drinking varying amounts of that hair dye.

The aims of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of unexplained PH in long-term HD patients, and to examine some possible etiologic factors for its occurrence. The prevalence of PH was estimated by Doppler(More)
Our work is to evaluate the biopsies rectal (RB), cutaneous and one about the accessory salivary glands (ASGB) in the diagnosis of amyloidosis renal through 20 cases of renal amyloidosis confirmed by renal biopsy in unit of nephrology and hemodialysis in UHC lbn Rochd from February 1996 to January 1998.

BACKGROUND Secondary hyperparathyroidism, a major clinical problem in patients with chronic renal failure, develops in response to phosphate retention and impaired calcitriol [1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3] synthesis. Vitamin D therapy, particularly alfacalcidol [1 alpha-hydroxyvitamin D3], has been shown to be effective in the treatment of secondary(More)
TINU or Dobrin syndrome is a rare oculo-renal inflammatory condition which is comprised of acute idiopathic tubulointerstitial nephritis and uveitis. We report here two female patients aged 35 and 44 years, who were admitted with severe renal failure of acute onset (serum creatinine of 607 and 310 Umol/L [Editor note: do you mean "micromol/L"?](More)
The prevalence of pruritus varies from 60% to 90% in patients receiving hemodialysis. The aim to this study was to evaluate the frequency of pruritus and its characteristics among moroccan patients receiving hemodialysis. Pruritus related to primary skin disease or other identified cause than chronic renal failure was excluded. Biological parameters were(More)
The bony complications in secondary hyperparathyroidism in chronic renal failure are varied. The ossifying fibroma is a rare manifestation.
