BACKGROUND Since the identification of the NPHS2 gene, various investigators have demonstrated that an NPHS2 mutation is a frequent cause of sporadic steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRNS), and occurs in 10.5-28% of children with the syndrome. Idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (INS) is also the most frequent glomerular disease in Chinese children, of which approximately 20% of cases show steroid resistance. To our knowledge, however, whether or not NPHS2 is the causative gene in Chinese… CONTINUE READING
