OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were to review the prevalence, cause, and morbidity and mortality rates of acute renal failure in a large tertiary care institution in southern Thailand, to examine any differences in acute renal failure cases diagnosed during a 22-year period, and to determine the risk factors indicating death. METHODS The case(More)
Of the 363 Thai children upon whom a voiding cystouretrogram was performed, a vesicoureteral reflux was detected in 22.8% (17.1%-28.5%) of those for whom it was performed within 7 days (n = 215) of a urinary tract infection diagnosis and in 24.3% (17.4%-31.2%) of those for whom it was performed 7 days (n = 148) after diagnosis. There was no statistically(More)
The medical records of patients admitted between 1985 and 2007 with wasp stings were retrospectively analyzed. Among the 45 children, seven developed acute renal failure. Classical clinical and laboratory data pointed to hemolysis and rhabdomyolysis as the underlying pathophysiology. All patients had hyponatremia and hyperkalemia as well as metabolic(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of a 36-month course of intravenous cyclophosphamide therapy for severe lupus nephritis in Thai children between October 1993 and December 2000. METHODS Intravenous cyclophosphamide combined with oral prednisolone was given for 36 months to patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who had severe renal(More)
We report two children who developed acute renal failure after multiple wasp stings. Each case involved intravascular hemolysis which caused acute renal failure, volume overload, hypertension, anemia, hyponatremia, hyperkalemia, and metabolic acidosis. Peritoneal dialysis was required for short periods. The children recovered completely with blood urea(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine the outcome of acute kidney injury (AKI) in children with dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF), the cause(s) of AKI, and the risk of AKI and fatality. STUDY DESIGN The medical records of patients age <15 years during 1989 to 2007 were reviewed. DHF-caused AKI and patients with DHF with no AKI were matched 1:2 by age. RESULTS DHF-caused(More)
AIM To evaluate the association between primary vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) and renal scarring in children using 99 m Technetium-labelled dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA). METHODS Children attending at Songklanagarind Hospital from 1987 to 2002 were evaluated. RESULTS Ages at diagnosis of VUR in 46 boys and 52 girls were 1.1+/-1.6 and 2.9+/-2.5 years,(More)
We report on a 14-year-old boy with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (lymphoma-leukemia) who had two episodes of acute tumor lysis syndrome during induction of remission with oral prednisolone alone and oral prednisolone, intravenous vincristine, and doxorubicin, respectively. Subsequently he had severe hyperphosphatemia (29.3 and 14.1 mg/dl; 9.46 and 4.55(More)
Congenital and infantile nephrotic syndrome reported from the Eastern world is rare and might be a different entity from that in the West. In a retrospective review of 10 nephrotic syndrome in Thai infants (5 girls and 5 boys), 7 were diagnosed with congenital nephrotic syndrome and 3 with infantile nephrotic syndrome. Two had congenital nephrotic syndrome(More)
BACKGROUND Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common contributor to morbidity and mortality in newborns, with prevalences varying by population and hospital. A study of AKI in newborns in tertiary care centers in Thailand, a developing country with limited resources, has not been conducted yet. METHODS The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of(More)
