We retrospectively evaluated the clinical and histopathological features, treatment modalities, and outcome of 53 children and adolescents with biopsy-proven lupus nephritis (LN), followed between September 1983 and September 2001. The mean age (±SD) at the time of diagnosis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) was 12.9±2.6 years and the mean follow-up(More)
Eight boys aged 2–12 weeks with urinary tract malformations (UTMs) exhibited features of transient type 1 pseudo-hypoaldosteronism (TPHA1) in the course of urinary tract infection (UTI). Hyponatremia (120.9 ± 5.8 mmol/l), hyperkalemia (6.9 ± 0.9 mmol/l), metabolic acidosis (plasma bicarbonate 11 ± 1.4 mmol/l), and a rise in serum creatinine levels (145 ±(More)
INTRODUCTION Infants with cystic fibrosis may fail to thrive despite recommended caloric intake because of electrolyte disurbances caused by salt depletion resulting in hypochloremic metabolic alkalosis or pseudo-Bartter's syndrome. In most patients reported symptoms began in infancy, but it may be an initial presentation of disease in a previously healthy(More)
Schimke immunoosseous dysplasia (SIOD), which is characterized by prominent spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia, T-cell deficiency, and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, is a panethnic autosomal recessive multisystem disorder with variable expressivity. Biallelic mutations in switch/sucrose nonfermenting (swi/snf) related, matrix-associated, actin-dependent(More)
Congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) account for approximately 40% of children with ESRD in the United States. Hitherto, mutations in 23 genes have been described as causing autosomal dominant isolated CAKUT in humans. However, >90% of cases of isolated CAKUT still remain without a molecular diagnosis. Here, we hypothesized that(More)
Several reports have documented various forms of glomerular diseases in adults with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), but similar reports in children are lacking. We describe two children with MDS-associated steroid-responsive nephrotic syndrome (NS). Patient 1, who had MDS with myelofibrosis, presented with hepatosplenomegaly, pancytopenia, chronic(More)
BACKGROUND Pulmonary renal syndrome (PRS), denoting the presence of diffuse alveolar hemorrhage and glomerulonephritis as manifestations of systemic autoimmune disease, is very rare in childhood. The coexistence of circulating anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) and anti-glomerular basement membrane (GBM) disease in children affected by this(More)
INTRODUCTION Congenital nephrotic syndrome is usually presented with heavy proteinuria, hypoproteinaemia, oedema and hyperlipidaemia in a child from its birth until the age of 3 months. Aetiology of the disease is mutation in the relevant gene or it develops secondary to various infections. The most common form of congenital nephrotic syndrome is caused by(More)
In 53 children and adolescents (47 males, 6 females) with lupus nephritis, clinical features at the time of renal biopsy were analyzed and correlated with pathohistological findings. Therapeutic regimens used and the renal status at the end of follow-up are presented, and factors significantly associated with adverse outcome are analyzed. The mean age at(More)
