Between January 1982 and December 1986, among the 750 patients with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) who were treated at two adjacent hospitals in New York City, 78 (10.4 percent) needed evaluation for renal disorders. Reversible acute renal failure due to nephrotoxic injury, ischemic injury, or both was present in 23 patients (30 percent)(More)
Ten patients with clinical and laboratory features of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) underwent renal ultrasonography prior to biopsy because of proteinuria, azotemia, or uremia. Four patients had a history of intravenous heroin abuse and were considered separately so as to exclude it as a cause of nephropathy. Histological examination revealed(More)
Human immunodeficiency virus associated nephropathy (Hivan) is a distinct renal disease described in patients infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Hivan is characterized by a nephrotic syndrome, enlarged kidneys, a histologic finding of focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis, and a very rapid progression to end-stage renal disease (ESRD).(More)
Among a spectrum of renal disorders encountered in patients infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the lesion studied most often has been the glomerular disease known as HIV-associated nephropathy. Of the other coincidental renal perturbations reported, the most significant are a heterogenous group encompassing potentially reversible acute(More)
Of the 92 patients with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) who were seen at our institution over a two-year period, 9 acquired the nephrotic syndrome (urinary protein greater than 3.5 g per 24 hours) and 2 had azotemia with lesser amounts of urinary protein. Five of these 11 patients had a history of intravenous-heroin addiction, but in the(More)
The objective of this study was to define the demographic, immunologic, and clinical characteristics of children with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and AIDS nephropathy, and contrast this with the existing adult data. Data from 62 pediatric patients with AIDS who were treated at SUNY Health Science Center, Brooklyn, New York, between 1983 and(More)
