A condition characterized by severe PROTEINURIA, greater than 3.5 g/day in an average adult. The substantial loss of protein in the urine results in complications such as HYPOPROTEINEMIA; generalized EDEMA; HYPERTENSION; and HYPERLIPIDEMIAS. Diseases associated with nephrotic syndrome generally cause chronic kidney dysfunction.
A clinicopathological syndrome or diagnostic term for a type of glomerular injury that has multiple causes, primary or secondary. Clinical features include PROTEINURIA, reduced GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE, and EDEMA. Kidney biopsy initially indicates focal segmental glomerular consolidation (hyalinosis) or scarring which can progress to globally sclerotic glomeruli leading to eventual KIDNEY FAILURE.
A kidney disease with no or minimal histological glomerular changes on light microscopy and with no immune deposits. It is characterized by lipid accumulation in the epithelial cells of KIDNEY TUBULES and in the URINE. Patients usually show NEPHROTIC SYNDROME indicating the presence of PROTEINURIA with accompanying EDEMA.

A type of glomerulonephritis that is characterized by the accumulation of immune deposits (COMPLEMENT MEMBRANE ATTACK COMPLEX) on the outer aspect of the GLOMERULAR BASEMENT MEMBRANE. It progresses from subepithelial dense deposits, to basement membrane reaction and eventual thickening of the basement membrane.
Inflammation of the renal glomeruli (KIDNEY GLOMERULUS) that can be classified by the type of glomerular injuries including antibody deposition, complement activation, cellular proliferation, and glomerulosclerosis. These structural and functional abnormalities usually lead to HEMATURIA; PROTEINURIA; HYPERTENSION; and RENAL INSUFFICIENCY.

Fitzgerald factor (high molecular weight kininogen) clotting activity in human plasma in health and disease in various animal plasmas. (1/1128)

Fitzgerald factor (high molecular weight kininogen) is an agent in normal human plasma that corrects the impaired in vitro surface-mediated plasma reactions of blood coagulation, fibrinolysis, and kinin generation observed in Fitzgerald trait plasma. To assess the possible pathophysiologic role of Fitzgerald factor, its titer was measured by a functional clot-promoting assay. Mean +/- SD in 42 normal adults was 0.99+/-0.25 units/ml, one unit being the activity in 1 ml of normal pooled plasma. No difference in titer was noted between normal men and women, during pregnancy, or after physical exercise. Fitzgerald factor activity was significantly reduced in the plasmas of eight patients with advanced hepatic cirrhosis (0.40+/-0.09 units/ml) and of ten patients with disseminated intravascular coagulation (0.60+/-0.30 units/ml), but was normal in plasmas of patients with other congenital clotting factor deficiencies, nephrotic syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, or sarcoidosis, or under treatment with warfarin. The plasmas of 21 mammalian species tested appeared to contain Fitzgerald factor activity, but those of two avian, two repitilian, and one amphibian species did not correct the coagulant defect in Fitzgerald trait plasmas.  (+info)

Hypoalbuminemia increases lysophosphatidylcholine in low-density lipoprotein of normocholesterolemic subjects. (2/1128)

BACKGROUND: A phospholipid, lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC), is the major determinant of the atherosclerotic properties of oxidized low-density lipoprotein (LDL). Under normal circumstances most LPC is bound to albumin. We hypothesized that lipoprotein LPC concentrations are increased in hypoalbuminemic patients with the nephrotic syndrome, irrespective of their lipid levels. To test this hypothesis, we selected nephrotic and control subjects with matched LDL cholesterol levels. METHODS: Lipoproteins and the albumin-rich lipoprotein-deficient fractions were separated by ultracentrifugation and their phospholipid composition was analyzed by thin-layer chromatography. RESULTS: Nephrotic subjects (albumin 23 +/- 2 g/liter and LDL cholesterol 3.1 +/- 0.2 mmol/liter) had a LDL LPC concentration that was increased (P < 0.05) to 66 +/- 7 vs. 35 +/- 6 micromol/liter in matched controls (albumin 42 +/- 5 g/liter and LDL cholesterol 3.1 +/- 0.2 mmol/liter). LPC in very low-density lipoprotein plus intermediate-density lipoprotein (VLDL + IDL) in these subjects was also increased to 33 +/- 7 vs. 9 +/- 2 micromol/liter in controls (P < 0.05). Conversely, LPC was decreased to 19 +/- 4 micromol/liter in the albumin-containing fraction of these hypoalbuminemic patients, as compared to 46 +/- 10 micromol/liter in the controls (P < 0.05). LPC was also low (14 +/- 4 micromol/liter) in the albumin-containing fraction of hypoalbuminemic, hypocholesterolemic patients with nonrenal diseases. In hyperlipidemic nephrotic subjects (albumin 21 +/- 2 g/liter and LDL cholesterol 5.7 +/- 0.5 mmol/liter) the LPC levels in LDL and VLDL + IDL were further increased, to 95 +/- 20 and 56 +/- 23 micromol/liter, respectively (P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: These findings suggest that in the presence of hypoalbuminemia in combination with proteinuria, LPC shifts from albumin to VLDL, IDL and LDL. This effect is independent of hyperlipidemia. Increased LPC in lipoproteins may be an important factor in the disproportionate increase in cardiovascular disease in nephrotic patients with hypoalbuminemia.  (+info)

Circulating vascular endothelial growth factor is not increased during relapses of steroid-sensitive nephrotic syndrome. (3/1128)

BACKGROUND: An uncharacterized circulating factor that increases vascular permeability has previously been described in childhood steroid-sensitive nephrotic syndrome (SSNS). The aim of this study was to determine whether this factor is vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), the recently described endothelial cell mitogen and enhancer of vascular permeability. METHODS: Plasma and urine VEGF levels were measured in children with SSNS in both relapse and remission and in normal age- and sex-matched controls. Semiquantitative reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction studies investigating VEGF mRNA expression were performed on peripheral blood mononuclear cells isolated from children with SSNS in relapse and controls. In two experimental models (one-hour and three-day follow-up postinfusion), Sprague-Dawley rats were intravenously administered 50 microg rVEGF to determine whether this induced either proteinuria or glomerular histologic change. RESULTS: Plasma VEGF levels and urine VEGF/creatinine ratios were not elevated in SSNS relapse compared with remission and control samples. Peripheral blood mononuclear cell VEGF mRNA expression was no different in SSNS patients compared with controls. The administration of VEGF to rats induced an acute reversible fall in systemic blood pressure but did not result in the development of either proteinuria or glomerular histologic change. CONCLUSION: Increased circulating VEGF levels are not responsible for the proteinuria observed during relapses of SSNS. Further studies are warranted to investigate intrarenal VEGF expression.  (+info)

Nephrotic syndrome as a clinical manifestation of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) in a marrow transplant recipient after cyclosporine withdrawal. (4/1128)

GVHD is one of the most frequent complications of BMT and recently nephrotic syndrome (NS) has been described as a manifestation of chronic GVHD. Here, we present an AA patient who developed NS 1 year after BMT when cyclosporine was stopped. Renal biopsy showed focal sclerosis associated with membranous deposits. He also had other clinical manifestations of chronic GVHD: sicca-like syndrome and colestasis. After 15 days of CsA therapy, he experienced a remarkable improvement in the NS and GVHD as a whole. We comment on immunological mechanisms that could be involved in the pathogenesis of this manifestation.  (+info)

Acute haemodynamic and proteinuric effects of prednisolone in patients with a nephrotic syndrome. (5/1128)

BACKGROUND: Administration of prednisolone causes an abrupt rise in proteinuria in patients with a nephrotic syndrome. METHODS: To clarify the mechanisms responsible for this increase in proteinuria we have performed a placebo controlled study in 26 patients with a nephrotic syndrome. Systemic and renal haemodynamics and urinary protein excretion were measured after prednisolone and after placebo. RESULTS: After i.v. administration of 125-150 mg prednisolone total proteinuria increased from 6.66+/-4.42 to 9.37+/-6.07 mg/min (P<0.001). By analysing the excretion of proteins with different charge and weight (albumin, transferrin, IgG, IgG4 and beta2-microglobulin) it became apparent that the increase of proteinuria was the result of a change in size selectivity rather than a change in glomerular charge selectivity or tubular protein reabsorption. Glomerular filtration rate rose from 83+/-34 ml to 95+/-43 ml/min (P<0.001) after 5 h, whereas effective renal plasma flow and endogenous creatinine clearance remained unchanged. As a result filtration fraction was increased, compatible with an increased glomerular pressure, which probably contributes to the size selectivity changes. Since corticosteroids affect both the renin-angiotensin system and renal prostaglandins, we have evaluated the effects of prednisolone on proteinuria after pretreatment with 3 months of the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor lisinopril or after 2 weeks of the prostaglandin synthesis inhibitor indomethacin. Neither drug had any effect on prednisolone-induced increases of proteinuria. CONCLUSIONS: Prednisolone increases proteinuria by changing the size selective barrier of the glomerular capillary. Neither the renin-angiotensin axis nor prostaglandins seem to be involved in these effects of prednisolone on proteinuria.  (+info)

Altered gene expression and functions of mitochondria in human nephrotic syndrome. (6/1128)

The molecular basis of glomerular permselectivity remains largely unknown. The congenital nephrotic syndrome of the Finnish type (CNF) characterized by massive proteinuria already present but without extrarenal symptoms is a unique human disease model of pure proteinuria. In search of genes and pathophysiologic mechanisms associated with proteinuria, we used differential display-PCR to identify differences in gene expression between glomeruli from CNF and control kidneys. A distinctly underexpressed PCR product of the CNF kidneys showed over 98% identity with a mitochondrially encoded cytochrome c oxidase (COX I). Using a full-length COX I cDNA probe, we verified down-regulation of COX I mRNA to 1/4 of normal kidney values on Northern blots. In addition, transcripts of other mitochondrially encoded respiratory chain complexes showed a similar down-regulation whereas the respective nuclearly encoded complexes were expressed at comparable levels. Additional studies using histochemical, immunohistochemical, in situ hybridization, RT-PCR, and biochemical and electron microscopic methods all showed a mitochondrial involvement in the diseased kidneys but not in extrarenal blood vessels. As a secondary sign of mitochondrial dysfunction, excess lipid peroxidation products were found in glomerular structures in CNF samples. Our data suggest that mitochondrial dysfunction occurs in the kidneys of patients with CNF, with subsequent lipid peroxidation at the glomerular basement membrane. Our additional studies have revealed similar down-regulation of mitochondrial functions in experimental models of proteinuria. Thus, mitochondrial dysfunction may be a crucial pathophysiologic factor in this symptom.  (+info)

Th1 and Th2 cytokine mRNA profiles in childhood nephrotic syndrome: evidence for increased IL-13 mRNA expression in relapse. (7/1128)

Idiopathic nephrotic syndrome of childhood is thought to be associated with T lymphocyte dysfunction often triggered by viral infections, with the production of circulating factor(s) resulting in proteinuria. In view of the conflicting evidence of T cell activation and Th1 or Th2 pattern of cytokine synthesis in this disease, this study examined the mRNA expression of interleukin-2 (IL-2), interferon-gamma, IL-4, and IL-13 from CD4+ and CD8+ T cells in steroid-responsive nephrotic patients in relapse and remission. Fifty-five children with steroid-responsive nephrotic syndrome were included in this study, together with 34 normal controls and 24 patient controls with viral infections. RNA was isolated from purified CD4+ or CD8+ cells from peripheral blood and subjected to reverse transcription-PCR. Cytokine mRNA expression was measured semiquantitatively, and a cytokine index was derived from densitometric readings, with cyclophilin as the housekeeping gene. Both cross-sectional and paired data showed an increased CD4+ and CD8+ IL-13 mRNA expression in patients with nephrotic relapse as compared to remission, normal, and patient controls (P < 0.008). This was also associated with increased cytoplasmic IL-13 expression in phorbol myristate acetate/ionomycin-activated CD3+ cells (6.66+/-3.39%) from patients with nephrotic relapse compared to remission (2.59+/-1.35%) (P < 0.0001). However, there was no significant difference in CD4+ or CD8+ IL-2, interferon-gamma and IL-4 mRNA expression. IL-13 is an important T cell cytokine with anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory functions on B cells and monocytes. It is conceivable that IL-13 may act on monocytes to produce vascular permeability factor(s) involved in the pathogenesis of proteinuria in patients with relapse nephrotic syndrome.  (+info)

Possible induction of renal dysfunction in patients with lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase deficiency by oxidized phosphatidylcholine in glomeruli. (8/1128)

To clarify the causes of renal dysfunction in familial lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) deficiency, kidney samples from 4 patients with LCAT deficiency (3 homozygotes and 1 heterozygote) were examined immunohistochemically. All of the patients exhibited corneal opacities, anemia, renal dysfunction, deficiencies in plasma high density lipoprotein and LCAT activity and mass, and an increase in the ratio of plasma unesterified cholesterol to esterified cholesterol. Renal lesions began with the deposition of lipidlike structures in the glomerular basement membrane, and these structures accumulated in the mesangium and capillary subendothelium. By electron microscopy, 2 types of distinctive structure were found in glomerular lesions: vacuole structures and cross-striated, membranelike structures. The plasma oxidized phosphatidylcholine (oxPC) -modified low density lipoprotein (LDL) levels in LCAT-deficient subjects were significantly (P<0.01) higher than those in controls (1.30+/-0.82 versus 0.42+/-0.32 ng/5 microg LDL, respectively), and a significant (P<0.01) difference was observed even after adjustment for confounding factors by an analysis of covariance. The patient with the highest plasma oxPC-modified LDL had the most membranelike structures in the glomeruli and showed the greatest renal deterioration from a young age. In glomerular lesions, although there was an abundance of apoB and apoE, oil red O-positive lipids, macrophages, apoA1, and malondialdehyde were scarce. OxPC was found extracellularly in glomerular lesions, and although its distribution differed from that of apolipoproteins, it was quite similar to that of phospholipids. In conclusion, these results indicate that oxPC in plasma and glomeruli is distinctive for patients with LCAT deficiency. Therefore, oxPC may be a factor in the deterioration of kidneys in patients with familial LCAT deficiency.  (+info)

PY - 2015/1/10. Y1 - 2015/1/10. N2 - Emerging evidence suggests an association between food sensitivity and gut microbiota in children with nephrotic syndrome. Diminished proteinuria resulted from eliminating cows milk and the use of an oligoantigenic diet which excluded gluten, especially in patients with immune-related conditions, i.e., celiac disease and nephrotic syndrome. The mechanisms underlying the association of diet, gut microbiota, and dysregulation of the immune system are unknown. Gut microbiota is influenced by a number of factors including diet composition and other environmental epigenetic exposures. The imbalance in gut microbiota may be ameliorated by gluten-free and dairy-free diets. Gluten-free diet increased the number of unhealthy bacteria while reducing bacterial-induced cytokine ...

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Most patients with steroid sensitive nephrotic syndrome (SSNS) have frequent relapses until disease resolve spontaneously toward the end of second decade of life and so the main problem in such disease is frequent relapses and their association with complications of disease or side effects of drugs used in each relapse. OBJECTIVE: In this study, we evaluate different factors which might be associating or leading to occurrence of frequent relapses. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective study was done in the Central Child Teaching Hospital from Feb. 2007 - Feb. 2008, during this period, 120 patients with nephrotic syndrome (NS) randomly selected who were diagnosed & or treated in this hospital. Out of 120 patients, 85 (70.8%) patients with steroid sensitive nephrotic syndrome (SSNS), 9 (7.5%) patients with steroid dependant nephrotic syndrome (SDNS) and 26 (21.7%) patients with steroid resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRNS). The steroid sensitive patients were divided into 24 ...

Corticosteroid resistant and dependent nephrotic syndrome in children is a challenge and there are some difficulties in treating such patients. We reviewed the current studies that evaluated therapeutic role of a relatively new immunosuppressive drug rituximab in reducing proteinuria and reduction of relapse rate in less than 16 year old patients with non-responsive or steroid dependent nephrotic syndrome. We searched Medline, Embase, web of science and Cochrane library with appropriate keywords and conducted the complete remission, relapse rate and the mean number of relapses 12 month after therapy on Meta-analysis. We put the data on two different subgroups; steroid resistant nephrotic syndrome and steroid dependent or frequent relapser nephrotic syndrome. In Steroid Resistant Nephrotic syndrome children, the complete remission was 0.27 (0.2- 0.34). In Steroid Dependent Nephrotic syndrome patients, the overall standard mean differences of mean number of relapses 12 mo after treatment in ...

Most children will have at least one relapse or recurrence of protein in the urine. Each relapse will need a further course of steroid treatment. In general, steroid treatment for a relapse is for a shorter time than the initial treatment at the time of diagnosis of nephrotic syndrome. If a child has fairly frequent relapses then they might take a small dose of steroid medication on alternate days to prevent relapses. This is usually called maintenance treatment. However, as the child becomes older, the relapses usually happen less often ...
Chlorambucil (Leukeran), a cytotoxic agent, was administered to 13 children with the nephrotic syndrome who had responded to steroid therapy, but frequently relapsed.
Nephrotic syndrome is caused by too much protein secreted in the urine. It is a rare condition where fewer than 200,000 cases are reported in the United States each year. With nephrotic syndrome, there is usually damage to a bunch of small blood vessels in the kidneys that filter water and waste in the blood. When a person has nephrotic syndrome the feet and ankles become swollen, which can cause other medical problems. In order to treat nephrotic syndrome, the underlying cause of the condition has to be treated. It can cause blood clots and infections as well. In addition to the medical professional providing prescription medication, he or she will suggest a dietary plan that will prevent and help with any complications of having the nephrotic syndrome. There are eight possible causes that can lead to nephrotic syndrome. It is important to know what can cause the condition just in case a person believes that he or she could possibly have it.. ...

Congenital nephrotic syndrome is an inherited disorder characterized by protein in the urine and swelling of the body. Congenital nephrotic syndrome is a very rare form of nephrotic syndrome. It occurs predominantly in families of Finnish origin and manifests shortly after birth. It is an inherited disorder. The condition is caused by a defect in the protein nephrin, which is found in the kidney. Proteins and fats are excreted in the urine, and there is an abnormally high fat level in the blood. Swelling occurs due to kidney failure, combined with the loss of blood protein. This is because proteins in the blood normally keep fluids in the blood stream, and when protein level is low, the fluid can leak into the body tissues. Some of the proteins lost in the urine are immune system antibodies that fight infections. The disorder commonly results in infection, malnutrition, and kidney failure. Low birth weight Large placenta Swelling (total body) Decreased urine output Foamy appearance of urine Poor ...
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: More than half of the children with idiopathic nephrotic syndrome become steroid-dependent (or frequent relapsers) and will later require the use of complementary treatment aiming to reduce steroids side effects and to limit the number of proteinuria relapses. It appears important to identify these children as early as possible in order to adapt their treatment. The aim of this study was to analyze the population of children, under 18 years of age, diagnosed between 1/01/2000 and 31/05/2015 with an idiopathic nephrotic syndrome and followed at the Montpellier University Hospital to search for criteria predictive of steroid-sparing agent use ...

A review was undertaken of the use of alternative immunosuppressive treatment in addition to corticosteroids in a cohort of 429 children with steroid sensitive nephrotic syndrome (SSNS) treated between 1980 and 1994. Two hundred and twenty two children (52%) received at least one course of alternative treatment, 98 (23%) two, and 43 (10%) three. Cyclophosphamide was administered to 196 children (46%); in 181 it was the first course of alternative treatment and in 104 (57%) of those it was also the last (final course). Levamisole was given to 56 children (13%) and cyclosporin to 53 (12%). Fifteen children in whom cyclosporin failed were treated with chlorambucil. A few patients received azathioprine or vincristine. Ten children developed secondary steroid resistance, of whom five progressed to chronic renal failure. Acute complications included reversible renal failure, septicaemia, peritonitis, convulsions, and cerebral thrombosis. There were three deaths. It is concluded that half of the ...

The development of the nephrotic syndrome during pregnancy is an uncommon occurrence (1, 2). We have recently observed a young primigravida who developed severe pre-eclampsia with massive proteinuria which was followed by the classic features of the nephrotic syndrome. Detailed observations of this patient, including serial renal function studies and renal biopsies during her pregnancy and for 1 year post partum, form the basis of this report. This is the second report of a case of histologically proven pre-eclamptic nephropathy leading to the nephrotic syndrome, the first having been reported by Hopper and associates (3). ...
Idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (INS) is the most frequent form of NS in children. INS is defined by the association of the clinical features of NS with renal biopsy findings of minimal changes, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), or mesangial proliferation (MP) on light microscopy and effacement of foot processes on electron microscopy. Actually the podocyte has become the favourite candidate for constituting the main part of the glomerular filtration barrier. Most cases are steroid sensitive (SSINS). Fifty percents of the latter recur frequently and necessitate a prevention of relapses by nonsteroid drugs. On the contrary to SSINS, steroid resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRINS) leads often to end-stage renal failure. Thirty to forty percents of the latter are associated with mutations of genes coding for podocyte proteins. The rest is due to one or several different circulating factors. New strategies are in development to antagonize the effect of the latter.
Despite the occurrence of relapses, steroid sensitive nephrotic syndrome (SSNS) has a good long term prognosis. As it often heralds a clinical relapse, significant proteinuria (+++ or more on albustix) for ⩾3 consecutive days (simplified as P3D in this letter) defines a relapse, resulting in steroid therapy before the onset of oedema. Proteinuria may be triggered by viral infections1 and does not always develop into a relapse.2. We have observed 24 consecutive episodes of asymptomatic P3D, without oedema, occurring during a viral illness, in four children (two boys, two girls, age range 2-5 years) known to have SSNS. In eight of these episodes, the families refused to rush with steroid therapy; serum albumin level remained ,30 g/l in the three where measured, and the proteinuria resolved between 5 and 10 days. Sixteen other episodes occurred in three children, who were treated as relapses; all three were later labelled as frequent relapsers and started on long term steroid therapy. None ...
This is a retrospective observational study of a randomized controlled trial. Sound confusing? Its really not, and although its a small study it does offer some fresh insight into pathogenesis and treatment of complicated nephrotic syndrome. Source: Kamei K, Ishikura K, Sako M, et al.

Results of a preplanned interim analysis showed superiority of rituximab over ...
In addition to addressing the underlying cause, treatment of nephrotic syndrome focuses on reducing high cholesterol, blood pressure, and protein in urine through diet, medications, or both. Two groups of blood pressure medications-angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs)-also protect the kidneys by reducing proteinuria.. Some people may benefit from limiting protein in their diet to reduce the buildup of wastes in the blood.. Nephrotic syndrome may go away once the underlying cause, if known, has been treated. In children, 80 percent of cases of nephrotic syndrome are caused by a condition called minimal change disease, which can be successfully treated with prednisone. However, in adults, most of the time the underlying cause is a kidney disease such as membranous nephropathy or focal segmental glomerulonephritis, diseases that are treated with corticosteroids, immunosuppressive drugs, and, in some cases, cytotoxic agents. Unfortunately, these ...

The association between nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and nephrotic syndrome has long been recognized. Minimal change disease and membranous nephropathy have been the most common findings in those patients in whom a kidney biopsy was performed (1-6). Regarding NSAIDs-related minimal change disease, it is a peculiar type of nephrotic syndrome in which most of reported patients present with a severe AKI accompanying nephrotic syndrome manifestations (edema, proteinuria ,3.5 g/d, and hypoalbuminemia). Kidney biopsies typically show the characteristic pattern of drug-induced acute interstitial nephritis (AIN): a diffuse interstitial infiltrate composed predominantly of T lymphocytes, although eosinophils, macrophages, and plasma cells can also be observed (7). The glomeruli are normal in light microscopy, but a diffuse effacement of podocyte foot processes is observed in electron microscopy (1-4).. NSAIDs-related minimal change disease could be, therefore, categorized as a ...

Nephrotic syndrome recurred in 16 patients who had been free of the disease for an interval of 4 to 25 years. Their initial illness began in childhood and responsed to adrenocorticosteroid therapy; in 10 patients it was associated with few changes on light microscopic examination of kidney biopsy specimens. The late recurrence also responded to steroids, and in only 1 patient did low-grade proteinuria persist after treatment. Renal biopsy specimens taken from 8 patients during late recurrence showed minimal-change nephrotic syndrome in 7 and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis in 1. Renal function remained normal in all patients. The late recurrence of minimal-change nephrotic syndrome has most of the features of that syndrome seen in the more typical childhood age group and should be managed similarly. ...

Glomeruli are balls of tiny blood vessels (capillaries) that help remove waste products from the blood. When the filters stop working correctly, too much protein gets into pee.. Protein helps hold fluids in the blood. With less protein in the blood, fluids can move to other parts of the body and cause swelling in the face, belly, hands, arms, and feet.. Many things can damage the glomeruli and cause nephrotic syndrome. But in kids its usually due to minimal change disease. The damage to the glomeruli is so small (or minimal) that it can be seen only under a strong microscope called an electron microscope.. Why kids get minimal change disease isnt always known. It is believed to be due to an immune system problem. Often, it happens after an infection. Most kids outgrow minimal change disease by their teen years, with no kidney damage.. Rarely, kids can get other types of nephrotic syndrome due to things like:. ...

Seventy-three members of a 100-member kindred with asymptomatic proteinuria, nephrotic syndrome, and progressive renal failure were studied. Of those studied, 11 members had progressed to end-stage renal disease and seven had significant proteinuria (, 1 g/24 hours) with normal renal function. The genetic mode of inheritance was autosomal dominant with variable penetrance and expressivity. Histopathologic changes were variable but included focal segmental glomerulosclerosis and diffuse glomerulosclerosis. Renal failure usually occurred in the fifth decade of life. The most consistent clinical finding was proteinuria without microscopic hematuria or other significant urinary sediment elements. This disease differed from Alports hereditary nephritis and congenital nephrotic syndrome in age of onset, urinary findings, and associated conditions, that is, nerve deafness. The hereditary proteinuria and nephrotic syndrome described in this kindred represents another facet in the spectrum of hereditary ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Reduction in proteinuria attenuates hyperlipidemia in the nephrotic syndrome. AU - Kaysen, George. AU - Davies, R. William. PY - 1990/11. Y1 - 1990/11. N2 - Hyperlipidemia in the nephrotic syndrome is characterized by increased synthesis of lipids as well as reduced removal of lipids from the blood. When rats with nephrotic syndrome are fed a 40% protein diet, urinary albumin excretion and rate of albumin synthesis increase. Serum cholesterol and triglyceride concentration increase as well. If the increase in albuminuria, but not the increase in the rate of albumin synthesis resulting from dietary protein augmentation, is prevented by the administration of enalapril, serum triglyceride and cholesterol concentration are not increased but are reduced nearly to within the normal range. Proteinuria, and not an increased rate of albumin synthesis, thus plays a causal role in nephrotic hyperlipidemia. Therapy directed at correcting altered glomerular permselectivity, while perserving ...
The most useful drugs in the management of nephrotic syndrome are the corticosteroids. These drugs are as well known for their adverse effects as they are for their therapeutic advantages. The two most common paediatric side effects are suppression of linear growth and posterior subcapsular cataracts. Both of these untoward effects are insiduous and therefore less easily perceived. Although many workers have studied the growth inhibiting effects of the corticosteroids in the various diseases e.g. asthma, very little work was done to investigate these effects in patients with nephrotic syndrome. Furthermore, the Renal Clinic, King Edward VIII Hospital, Durban continues to use a daily regime of prednisone instead of the alternate day regime which is widely recommended to minimise growth retardation. This study was therefore undertaken to investigate the growth inhibiting effects of repeated courses of daily, high-dose prednisone in African and Indian children with nephrotic syndrome. All children ...

Repeat renal biopsies and serial serum creatinine measurements were done in 36 adults who were treated for steroid-dependent or -resistant idiopathic nephrotic syndrome with 5.54 +/- 0.81 mg/kg/day of cyclosporin A (CsA). Pre-CsA renal biopsy (RB1) had been carried out 11.6 +/- 12.2 months prior to CsA treatment. It showed minimal glomerular changes (MCD) in 22, and 1 to 16 glomeruli with lesions of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) per biopsy in 14. Pretreatment serum creatinine levels were (mumol/liter) 97.6 +/- 39.4 and were higher in FSGS (117.1 +/- 48.3) than in MCD (85.2 +/- 26.9; P | 0.04). Repeat biopsy (RB2) was done after 19.6 +/- 15.2 months (6 to 78) of CsA treatment. At this time, in 15 patients the minimal glomerular lesions observed on RB1 were unchanged, whereas in 7 patients lesions of FSGS were now visible. In patients with FSGS on RB1 and RB2, serum creatinine at the end of CsA treatment was 130.6 +/- 60.1 mumol/liter, significantly greater (P = 0.022) than the corresponding
Idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (INS) is the most frequent glomerular disease in childhood. Currently, all children with INS are treated at onset with steroids. The optimal duration and dosage of steroid therapy is debated. For each patient, the challenge is to minimise potential side effects of steroids, while achieving a good clinical response.. The aim of our study is to assess the benefits and potential adverse effects of a prolonged initial corticosteroid regimen, for the treatment of the initial episode. The results will be compared with data obtained retrospectively. In addition genetic studies will be undertaken with the aim of evaluating pharmacodynamics of steroid treatment with the ultimate goal to individualise treatment in single patients.. ...

Albumin infusions transiently increase plasma volume (PV) and oncotic pressure, and may restore diuretic responsiveness in nephrotic edema. To determine if albumin and furosemide therapy have an effect on PV in nephrotic children, 14 severely edematous children with minimal change nephrotic syndrome were evaluated with standard clinical parameters (heart rate, blood pressure, body weight, pretibial edema, abdominal circumference) and echocardiography [inferior vena cava index (IVCI), inferior vena cava collapsibility index (IVCCI)] before, 1 h and 24 h after albumin (20%, 0.5 g/kg, 1 h) and furosemide (2 mg/kg, i.v.) therapy. An increase in IVCI (P , 0.05), decrease in IVCCI (P , 0.05), edema (P , 0.005), and hematocrit (P , 0.005) were statistically significant 1 h after albumin and furosemide therapy, with a transient effect 24 h later. Body weight (P , 0.005), abdominal circumference (P , 0.05), and edema (P , 0.005) decreased significantly at 24 h. It is concluded that albumin and furosemide ...
Minimal change disease (also known as MCD and nil disease, among others) is a disease affecting the kidneys which causes a nephrotic syndrome. Nephrotic syndrome leads to the excretion of protein, which causes the widespread oedema (soft tissue swelling) and impaired kidney function commonly experienced by those affected by the disease. It is most common in children and has a peak incidence at 2 to 3 years of age. Play media The clinical signs of minimal change disease are proteinuria (abnormal excretion of proteins, mainly albumin, into the urine), oedema (swelling of soft tissues as a consequence of water retention), and hypoalbuminaemia (low serum albumin). These signs are referred to collectively as nephrotic syndrome. Minimal change disease is unique among the causes of nephrotic syndrome as it lacks evidence of pathology in light microscopy, hence the name. When albumin is excreted in the urine, its serum (blood) concentration decreases. Consequently, the intravascular oncotic pressure ...

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) remains an enigmatic disease despite many years of study. There has been a recent increased incidence of FSGS particularly in African Americans in whom the outcome tends to be worse. In about 30% of patients transplanted for FSGS, the disease recurs and often results in severe nephrotic syndrome and accelerated graft loss. FSGS is a common cause of nephrotic disease accounting for 10-20% of cases of idiopathic nephrotic syndrome in children and 35% of cases in adults. Most cases are refractory to current therapy resulting in the ultimate progression to end stage renal disease. Overall, FSGS accounts for about 15% of pediatric and 5% of adult cases of end stage renal disease. With the frequent post transplant recurrence, the morbidity and mortality of FSGS is increased. Thus, FSGS is a disease that is associated with a large cost to society and long-term morbidity to the individual patient. A treatment that could induce permanent remission and reverse ...

Abstract. ABSTRACT:BACKGROUND:Growth in patients with idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (INS) is influenced by several factors, they suffer the influence of the disease itself as long as there is proteinuria, caused by the increase of the glomerular permeability and leading to hypoproteinemia. The effects of the glucocorticoid treatment, which alters growth by a direct action on the growth cartilage, or via disturbances of growth factors. In this study we assess the effect of nephrotic syndrome, its relapse rate and its treatment (i.e. steroid), in the statural growth of steroid sensitive nephrotic patients.METHODS:A Prospective study of 110 steroid responsive nephrotic patients collected from AL- Kadhemia Teaching Hospital, Central Child Teaching Hospital, Child Wellfaire Teaching Hospital & AL-Karama Teaching Hospital.

Nephrotic syndrome is treated in the usual way to control fluid retention and prevent complications (see information on nephrotic syndrome, linked below). Minimal change disease usually responds well to treatment with high doses of prednisolone (steroids). This often stops the protein leak within days or weeks, although it may take longer in adults. The dose of steroids is then gradually reduced. Steroids have a number of side effects when used in high doses, including weight gain, thinning of the bones, a tendency to cause diabetes in some people, rounding of the face, and thinning of the skin in children, behaviour may be worse. It is therefore important to balance giving enough treatment with preventing side effects. If steroids are reduced and stopped too quickly, the protein leak may return very quickly.. Sometimes patients do not respond to treatment with steroids as expected. In some cases they actually have a different disease, such as FSGS, but in others, the disease is eventually ...
This longitudinal cohort study validated the predictive value of the fractional excretion of IgG in IMN patients with nephrotic syndrome. The heterogeneity of the progression to kidney failure in IMN patients and the lack of a reliable marker of disease severity has been a major confounding factor that contributed significantly to the contradictory results of the previous clinical treatment trials [20]. A recent meta-analysis of 1025 patients enrolled in 18 random controlled trials showed an increase in the likelihood of remission for patients treated with steroids and alkylating agents, but there were no beneficial effects on kidney function [21]. In our cohort, immunosuppressive treatment with steroids and cyclophosphamide significantly improved the clinical outcome only in patients with increased urinary excretion of IgG (FE-IgG ≥ 0.02). For these patients, immunosuppressive treatment reduced the 10-year incidence of kidney failure by 40% and increased the remission rate by 36%. Patients ...

CASE REPORT: A 4-year-old boy presented with nephrotic syndrome, arterial hypertension, and chronic anemia but no signs of hemolysis. Renal biopsy showed TMA with ischemic glomerular collapse, foot process effacement, and tubulointerstitial fibrosis. Elevated serum levels of homocysteine suggested a cobalamin C disorder. This was confirmed by the identification of compound heterozygous mutations in the MMACHC gene. Initial therapy consisted of antihypertensive treatment including angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEi) leading to blood pressure control and a significant reduction of proteinuria. After a definite diagnosis of CblC deficiency, hydroxocobalamin was introduced. Thereafter, homocysteine levels decreased, anemia resolved, and a further decline of proteinuria with normalization of serum protein levels was noted. Renal function remained stable ...

TIE tiel)lirotic syndrome is a disease, the cause of which is unknown, the treatment unsatisfactory, and the prognosis uncertain. The uncomplicated nephrotic syndrome in children is characterized by the presence of edema, hypoproteinemia, hyperlipemia, and proteinuria, and by the absence of persistent hypertension, azotemia and gross hematuria. The more complicated forms include neonatal or infantile nephrosis, nephrosis superimposed upon severe diabetes, and the nephropathies of syphilis, amyioidosis, disseminated lupus erythematosus., and acute and chronic glomerulonephritis.The introduction of antibiotics has eliminated almost completely the secondary serious infections such as primary streptococcal or pneumococcal peritonitis and the migrating erysipelas which took such a large toll in pre-antibiotic days.

HISTORY. A 7-year-old, intact male German Shepherd dog was visited for an acute onset of edema in ventral areas of the body. Previous medical history was unremarkable. Subcutaneous edema in scrotum, preputial area and distal limbs, and enlarged lymph nodes were found on physical exam. CBC was normal. Serum biochemical abnormalities were hypercholesterolemia and hypoalbuminemia. Urinalysis only showed proteinuria. FNA of peripheral lymph nodes was compatible with lymphoma. Additional tests were performed to stage lymphoma, confirm protein-losing nephropathy (PLN) and rule out other causes of PLN. Abdominal and thoracic radiographs and abdominal ultrasonography were normal. Serum leishmaniosis & ehrlichiosis titers were negative. Bone marrow cytology yielded normal results. Urine culture was negative and urine prot/creat ratio was 15. Further diagnostic tests were blood pressure determinations and serum antithrombin III which were also normal. Diagnosis of PLN and nephrotic syndrome associated ...
