The criterion for performing a renal biopsy in children with idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (NS) showing microscopic hematuria at onset remains controversial. To determine an adequate renal biopsy criterion in children with NS showing hematuria, the optimal cutoff for the maximum red blood cell (RBC) range in urine sediment to separate minimal change disease (MCD) from other glomerular changes was obtained by receiver operating characteristic analysis. We studied 29 children with NS showing… CONTINUE READING
