Each patient with IVIG-nonresponsive KD was matched to a control patient with(More)

Nephrotic syndrome is defined by nephrotic-range proteinuria (≥40 mg/m2/hour or urine protein/creatinine ratio ≥200 mg/mL or 3+ protein on urine dipstick), hypoalbuminaemia (<25 g/L) and oedema. This review focuses on the classification, epidemiology, pathophysiology, management strategies and prognosis of idiopathic nephrotic syndrome of childhood, and(More)
