Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis in one of two "en bloc" pediatric transplanted kidneys.

Abstract

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is thought to have several causes, including hypertension, reduction of nephron mass, or immunologic processes. Experimental studies have underlined the role of glomerular adaptation to capillary pressure in the growing kidney after partial nephrectomy. We report here the occurrence of FSGS in one of two "en bloc… (More)
