To evaluate the efficacy of cyclosporin A (CyA) for treating severe Henoch-Schönlein nephritis (HSN), seven patients with nephrotic syndrome, aged 3.9–13.8 years (mean 6.5 years), were analyzed retrospectively. Mean follow-up times were 5.5 years (range 2–9 years). All underwent renal biopsy before treatment, and follow-up renal biopsy was performed in six(More)
To evaluate the effect of azathioprine with steroids on the clinical course and histologic parameters of severe Henoch-Schönlein nephritis (HSN), 20 patients with a median age of 9.3 years (range 4.4–17 years) and a follow-up period of 4.8 years (range 1–14 years) were included in this study. The patients were divided into two groups. Ten patients received(More)
To identify factors affecting spontaneous resolution of hematuria in children with nutcracker syndrome, 20 patients diagnosed as having nutcracker syndrome using renal Doppler ultrasound (US) were analyzed retrospectively. Sixteen patients had microscopic hematuria, and four had gross hematuria at presentation. The mean age was 10.6 years (range 2.5–14(More)
To identify the factors affecting histological regression of crescentic Henoch–Schönlein nephritis (HSN), we retrospectively analyzed serially biopsied 20 children with crescentic HSN treated with immunosuppressants. They were classified into two groups according to the histological changes between the first and second biopsy: group I (n=10) with(More)
To assess the detection rate of nutcracker syndrome in children with isolated hematuria, renal Doppler ultrasound examinations were routinely performed on 216 consecutive children (176 microscopic hematuria and 40 gross hematuria). Renal Doppler ultrasound was also performed on 32 healthy normal children. The peak velocity (PV) was measured at the hilar(More)
To evaluate the therapeutic role of cyclosporin A (CyA) for the treatment of Henoch–Schönlein nephritis (HSN), 29 patients (18 boys, 11 girls) with nephrotic-range proteinuria were analyzed retrospectively. Mean age was 8.6 years (range 2.0–15.5 years) at diagnosis of Henoch–Schönlein purpura (HSP). All patients had developed the nephrotic-range proteinuria(More)
Schönlein–Henoch nephritis (SHN) usually presents with micro-haematuria or mild proteinuria but can be associated with heavy proteinuria and nephrotic or acute nephritic syndrome. Although the treatment of SHN is still under debate, it has been suggested that cyclosporin A (CsA) may be beneficial in children with severe SHN, as reported by Ronkainen et al.(More)
UNLABELLED We report on a 2-y-old male with intussusception accompanying nutcracker syndrome detected by renal Doppler ultrasound. Renal Doppler ultrasound revealed a significant difference in the peak velocity between the hilar and aortomesenteric portions of the left renal vein. CONCLUSION Renal Doppler ultrasound has been very useful and effective in(More)
