The treatment of steroid-resistant minimal change nephrotic syndrome (MCNS) continues to pose a therapeutic challenge. We conducted a randomised prospective controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy of IV cyclophosphamide compared with oral cyclophosphamide in 13 children with biopsy-proven steroid-resistant MCNS. All 7 patients receiving IV(More)
Seventeen children with renovascular hypertension were managed at the Royal Children"s Hospital, Melbourne, over the 20-year period from 1975 to 1996. The age at presentation ranged from 10 days to 18 years. All children presented with severe hypertension with mean systolic blood pressure 7 standard deviations above age-matched averages and mean diastolic(More)
This study was conducted to evaluate the safety and efficacy of tacrolimus (TAC) in children with SRNS. The study group comprised of 22 consecutive children with steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRNS) who were studied prospectively. TAC was initiated with a dose of 0.10 mg/kg/day, and the dose was increased to attain a trough level of 5.0-10.0 g/l.(More)
Crescentic glomerulonephritis (CsGN) is an uncommon entity in children. This prospective study was conducted to evaluate the aetiology, clinical spectrum and outcome in children with crescentic glomerulonephritis. The single-centre prospective study comprised of 22 children with biopsy proven CsGN who had been referred to our institute over the period(More)
Nephrotic syndrome in children is a clinical manifestation of different histopathological subtypes. There is a paucity of recent large studies dealing with the histopathological spectrum from developing countries. A prospective study was performed from January 1990 to December 2000 at our center, involving 600 children (with age of onset up to 16 years)(More)
A prospective analysis of all new pediatric cases of chronic renal failure (CRF) was performed at our hospital over a 1-year period. The diagnosis of CRF was based on serum creatinine >2 mg/dl with supportive clinical, laboratory, and radiological findings. There were a total of 48 patients with CRF with a median age of 13 years (range 10 days to 16 years).(More)
Leukoencephalopathy with severe hypertension is a recently described entity in nephrology, with only a few case reports to date in children. We prospectively studied 18 children with severe hypertension to evaluate the clinical features, severity, reversibility, and prognosis. All were subjected to clinical and biochemical tests, magnetic resonance imaging(More)
There are few data regarding adolescent-onset nephrotic syndrome (NS) and no guidelines for biopsy criteria and treatment protocol. This study was conducted to analyze the clinical spectrum of adolescent-onset NS and evaluate possible biopsy criteria in these children. A prospective analysis was carried out on all patients with idiopathic NS (fulfilling the(More)
This study was conducted to (1) see the histopathological distribution of different subtypes in steroid resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRNS) and (2) compare the clinical, biochemical parameters and outcome between Minimal Change Disease (MCD) with non-MCD subtypes in response to immunosuppressive therapy. A retrospective analysis was done of data on all(More)
Various factors were analyzed in 80 consecutive children under 16 years who had acute renal failure (ARF), for various prognostic factors. Overall mortality was 42.5%, with significantly higher levels seen in hemolytic uremic syndrome (68%, P <0.05) and associated with cardiac surgery (90.9%, P <0.01). Anuria (67.6% vs. 43.5%, P <0.05), need for dialysis(More)
