The spectrum of distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA) includes a genetically heterogeneous group of inherited conditions of both autosomal-dominant and recessive mode of inheritance. The basic defect is linked to the renal part of acid-base homeostasis, which is partly achieved by the regulated luminal secretion of H+ at the apical surface of the(More)
Familial glomerular hematuria(s) comprise a genetically heterogeneous group of conditions which include Alport Syndrome (AS) and thin basement membrane nephropathy (TBMN). Here we investigated 57 Greek-Cypriot families presenting glomerular microscopic hematuria (GMH), with or without proteinuria or chronic kidney function decline, but excluded classical(More)
Lactic acidosis is a potentially life-threatening metabolic disorder, initiated by an imbalance between lactic acid production and utilization. The only effective treatment is reversal of the cause of the disordered lactic acid metabolism [1]. Intravenous bicarbonate (HCO3 ) administration is often used as an interim treatment to attempt to ameliorate the(More)
Pancreas transplantation is an effective treatment option for patients with complicated diabetes mellitus. Pancreas allograft recipients are followed with laboratory markers such as serum amylase, lipase and glucose levels. Hyperglycemia may indicate severe acute rejection and has recently been associated with antibody-mediated (humoral) rejection. In this(More)
BACKGROUND Over the course of 1 year, four patients in a single institution developed acute kidney injury most likely secondary to nafcillin-associated acute interstitial nephritis, indicating that this complication might not be as rare as is commonly believed. The main case presented here is that of a 73-year-old man with a history of chronic low back pain(More)
Sir, Alendronate sodium, a bisphosphonate and commonly used pharmacologic agent for postmenopausal osteoporosis, has been rarely linked to renal toxicity [1] but not in association with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). A 55-year-old Caucasian woman developed proteinuria and hypertension. Nine years earlier, she had been diagnosed with breast(More)
