A 10-year-old boy was evaluated for fever, weight loss, uveitis, normocytic, normochromic anemia, renal insufficiency, and hypergammaglobulinemia of 8 weeks' duration. Infectious and neoplastic causes of fever were excluded. A renal biopsy performed in the 4th week of disease revealed diffuse plasmocytic interstitial nephritis. No treatment was prescribed(More)
Pediatric patients with end-stage renal failure due to severe drug-resistant nephrotic syndrome are at risk of rapid recurrence after renal transplantation. Treatment options include plasmapheresis, high-dose of cyclosporine A/methylprednisolone and more recently—rituximab (anti-B CD20 monoclonal depleting antibody). We report five patients with immediate(More)
UNLABELLED aHUS is a clinical challenge for successful renal transplantation. CASE REPORT A 14-yr-old girl lost her kidneys at the age of 7, due to CFH antibodies and CFH-related protein (CFHR1/CFHR3) homozygous deletion-associated aHUS. CFH, CFI, and MCP gene mutations were excluded. The patient was a candidate for renal transplantation despite(More)
SIOD is rare disorder related to SMARCAL1 or SMARCAL2 gene mutation, including (among other comorbidities) T-cell immunodeficiency, nephrotic syndrome, and renal failure. Up to 22% of primary patients may develop various autoimmune disorders. We report the case of 11-year-old male with SIOD, who presented ITP at 2 years after renal transplantation with(More)
BACKGROUND Despite prospective crossmatching and modern immunosuppression, early acute rejection is still present in cadaveric renal transplantation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence of preformed anti-donor antibodies, detected by 2 solid-phase techniques, and to analyze their impact on early renal allograft outcome. (More)
Three cases with the biliary tracts obstruction in infants are reported. Similar early clinical symptoms were subsequently distinguished by the serious of the diagnostic examinations. That allowed for undertaking proper treatment. The prognosis in congenital biliary tract obstruction depends on the child's age time of the operation and in the cases of the(More)
Early recurrence of nephrotic syndrome after renal transplantation is a common serious adverse event in children with severe primary FSGS, affecting long-term outcome. There is no consensus in terms of uniform management in these cases. We describe the long-term effect of four unadjusted doses of 375 mg/m(2) i.v. rituximab, given to a five and a(More)
UNLABELLED Rituximab (anti-B CD20 ab.) in recently widely used in renal transplantation. CASE HISTORY A 10-yr-old patient with end-stage renal failure due to multidrug-resistant NS was transplanted with renal graft from deceased donor and presented immediate recurrence of NS. PF was started on day 3 and patient received MP pulses, however with no effect.(More)
Schimke immuno-osseous dysplasia (SIOD) is a rare multisystem disorder with early mortality and steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRNS) progressing to end-stage kidney disease. We hypothesized that next-generation gene panel sequencing may unsurface oligosymptomatic cases of SIOD with potentially milder disease courses. We analyzed the renal and(More)
