Bone mineral content in nephrotic children on long-term, alternate-day prednisone therapy.


Bone mineral content (BMC) was measured by single-photon absorptiometry in 24 children with steroid-dependent, minimal-lesion nephrotic syndrome after 1 to 6.3 years of alternate-day prednisone therapy and in a sex- and age-matched control group. Bone mineral content was -0.002 +/- 1.2 standard deviation scores in patients and 0.3 +/- 1.4 in controls (t = 1… (More)
