BACKGROUND Nail-patella syndrome (NPS) is a rare autosomal-dominant disorder caused by LMX1B mutation. In patients with the renal lesions typical of NPS without skeletal or nail findings, it is described as nail-patella-like renal disease (NPLRD). However, the pathogenesis of NPLRD is largely unknown. METHODS A 6-year-old girl with microscopic haematuria and mild proteinuria was diagnosed with NPLRD because of an aberrantly thickened glomerular basement membrane (GBM) and deposition of Type… CONTINUE READING
