Children with acquired glomerular disease were divided into two groups: Group 1 patients received short-term daily or long-term alternate-day prednisone (up to 2.7 mg/kg/48 hr); group 2 patients received no corticosteroids. Height, bone mineral content (BMC), and bone density were evaluated in the two groups and compared to those of 800 sex- and age-matched controls; BMC and bone density were assessed by the photon absorption technique. Significant demineralization was present in 18 of 25… CONTINUE READING
