BACKGROUND Invasive mucormycosis is a very rare infection after kidney transplantation. Here, we report 25 renal transplant recipients with mucormycosis; to our knowledge, this is the largest reported population of mucormycosis in these patients. MATERIAL/METHODS In a retrospective study, we collected all kidney transplants with mucormycosis from 9(More)
BACKGROUND Acute renal failure is a common complication of cardiac surgery, with oxidants found to play an important role in renal injury. We therefore assessed whether the supplemental antioxidant vitamin E and the inhibitor of xanthine oxidase allopurinol could prevent renal dysfunction after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. METHODS Of 60(More)
INTRODUCTION Cutaneous mucormycosis is a rare entity related to kidney transplantation. It usually presents with ecthyma-like lesions and black necrotic cellulitis. We report an unusual case of primary cutaneous mucormycosis presenting as erythema-nodosum-like lesions in a woman who had received a renal transplant. CASE PRESENTATION A 49-year-old woman(More)
INTRODUCTION Hyperhomocysteinemia frequently occurs after renal transplantation. We therefore assessed whether serum homocysteine (Hcy) concentrations were correlated with clinical, paraclinical, and arterial Doppler parameters among renal transplant patients. METHODS A cross-sectional study was performed on 47 patients (30 males, 17 females) who received(More)
INTRODUCTION We measured bone mineral density (BMD) before and after transplantation to determine the frequency and severity of preoperative and postoperative osteoporosis and compare them with the BMD in healthy individuals. MATERIALS AND METHODS We determined the BMD at the lumbar spine and femoral levels in 22 men and 18 women who were on long-term(More)
Iran, a developing country with a population of approximately 71,000,000, is the most populous country in the Middle East and the 16th most populous in the world. Gross domestic product (GDP) per capita is US$8900 and total health expenditure is approximately 6% of GDP. The total number of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients reported by the Management(More)
Although ezetimibe therapy has been shown to be effective in lowering serum cholesterol level, it has not been reported to affect serum cyclosporine level in transplant recipients. Here, we describe a kidney transplant recipient who experienced acute kidney allograft dysfunction after ezetimibe prescription. Our patient showed an increase in serum(More)
Urinalysis is a mandatory diagnostic tool for the evaluation of patients with kidney diseases. A workshop on urinalysis was held for nephrologists in Isfahan, Iran, on October 11-12, 2012. After the presentation of the results of a survey of the nephrology centers of Iran on urine microscopy, the most important aspects of urinalysis were presented and(More)
INTRODUCTION Culture-negative peritonitis is a major challenge in the treatment of peritonitis in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). This study aimed to evaluate the culture-negative peritonitis in patients from the Iranian CAPD Registry. MATERIALS AND METHODS Data of 1472 patients from 26 CAPD centers were analysed. Peritonitis was defined(More)
OBJECTIVE This was a cross-sectional study of 150 consecutive patients (105 males and 44 females) with nephrolithiasis. Serum and urine metabolic evaluations were preformed. RESULTS 70 percent (n=105) of patients were males. Sixty patients (40%) had hypertension. The urine volume of 114 subjects (76%) was less than 1 liter/day. There was an inverse(More)
