We report the case of an HIV-positive patient with preexisting bone disease who developed tenofovir-induced Fanconi syndrome and subsequently sustained pathologic fractures. We suggest that tenofovir treatment may have contributed to the patient's pathologic fractures through its effects on phosphorus balance and vitamin D metabolism. This case highlights(More)
Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis/nephrogenic fibrosing dermopathy is an idiopathic fibrosing disorder recently described in patients with renal disease. The typical histology in nephrogenic systemic fibrosis consists of haphazardly arranged dermal collagen bundles with clefting, collagenous change which extends into the subcutaneous septa, mucin deposition,(More)
Kidney cancer, or renal cell carcinoma (RCC), is a disease of increasing incidence that is commonly seen in the general practice of nephrology. However, RCC is under-recognized by the nephrology community, such that its presence in curricula and research by this group is lacking. In the most common form of RCC, clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC),(More)
Glomerular diseases associated with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection are increasingly being recognized. Antiviral therapy with interferon-alpha (IFN-alpha) and ribavirin eradicate viral activity in a significant proportion of patients with chronic active hepatitis, often with amelioration of extrahepatic manifestations, including glomerular pathology.(More)
BACKGROUND Anemia occurs frequently among patients who develop acute kidney injury likely due to abnormal erythropoietic activity. Anemia has been associated with increased mortality among hospitalized patients, but its impact on renal recovery or survival is poorly characterized among patients with acute kidney injury. We aim to assess if anemia is(More)
We report the development of IgA nephropathy (IgAN) following full myeloablative allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation in two patients with human leukocyte antigen (HLA) matched sibling donors, unrelated to active or chronic graft-versus-host disease. Both recipients had elevated urinary levels of galactose-deficient IgA1, and one donor-recipient(More)
Residual renal function confers a survival benefit among dialysis patients thought to be related to greater volume removal and solute clearance. Whether the presence of residual renal function is protective or merely a marker for better health is not clear. The basic mechanisms governing the decline or persistence of residual renal function are poorly(More)
PURPOSE This AUA Guideline focuses on evaluation/counseling and management of adult patients with clinically localized renal masses suspicious for cancer, including solid-enhancing tumors and Bosniak 3/4 complex-cystic lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Systematic review utilized research from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and additional(More)

BACKGROUND Glomerular disease among haematopoietic cell transplantation recipients has been attributed to chronic graft-versus-host disease. Clinical outcomes of this population may be influenced by the haematopoietic cell transplantation conditioning regimen, donor factors and chronic graft-versus-host disease. METHODS In this review, 95 cases of(More)
