Morphometric measurements of glomerular size were made on renal biopsy specimens obtained from 16 children with minimal change nephrotic syndrome (MCNS) and 16 with isolated recurrent haematuria (RH), whose ages ranged from 1.8 to 15.2 years. Glomeruli were normal on light and electron microscopy, and immunofluorescence was essentially negative. Tracings(More)
A Japanese girl aged 5 years 4 months developed macroscopic hematuria and acute renal failure (ARF) 8 days before the appearance of purpura rash. A renal biopsy undertaken during the acute phase of illness revealed many red blood cells in the tubular lumina with no apparent glomerular lesions. ARF showed improvement without dialysis therapy. A second renal(More)
As a consequence of nephron loss, reflux nephropathy (RN) causes considerable glomerular hypertrophy. To examine the relative contributions of capillary dilatation and growth in producing hypertrophy, glomeruli contained in unscarred areas of renal biopsies from 19 children with RN were compared with those in 16 children with minimal change nephrotic(More)
