Chronic Nephritis occurs because of slow, progressive destruction of the glomeruli, with continuous loss of kidney function. When kidneys can not play their functions properly, then Chronic Nephritis occurs. Too much of calcium in the blood also can cause Chronic Nephritis. For about fifty percent to twenty percent of people with Chronic Nephritis, their kidney disease is transformed by Acute Nephritis. Though many different causes can be blame for the onset of Chronic Nephritis, one of the most common cases is an allergic reaction to medicine ...
Acute focal bacterial nephritis (AFBN) is a rare disease currently described only in case reports and small case series. In this study we summarize the clinical features of AFBN as has been documented in the literature and draw recommendations on the proper diagnosis and therapy. A systematic literature review was undertaken in PUBMED, Web of Science and The Cochrane Library online databases for relevant literature on AFBN in adults. Literature review revealed a total of 38 articles according to our inclusion criteria, of which we could extract data from 138 cases of AFBN. Fever (98%) and flank pain (80%) were most commonly reported symptoms. E. coli was the most frequent pathogen. Diagnosis was set by CT and/or MRI (52%) with or without sonography or by sonography alone (20%) as well as by sonography combined with IVU. In total, sonography was applied in 83% of cases. All but one patient received antibiotic treatment. Kidney lesions were occasionally mistaken for neoplasms or renal abscesses and as a

[email protected] Diane Wagner has a lot to be thankful for. Like most people she is thankful for her family, especially her loving husband, Rodney, and three children, Dawn, Stephanie, and Nathan. However, what she is most thankful for is her new kidney, which has allowed her to lead a more normal life. In 1984, Wagner wasnt feeling very well, so she and Rodney made a trip to Gundersen Health System in La Crosse, Wis. After some blood work, the doctors diagnosed her with acute nephritis of the kidneys, formerly known as Brights disease. There are three types of acute nephritis: pyelonephritis, glomerulonephritis, and interstitial nephritis. The doctors never gave her a specific diagnosis other than acute nephritis. "My kidneys were maybe functioning at 35 to 40 percent, so the doctors put me on a heavy dose of Prednisone," Wagner recalled. "The doctors thought the Prednisone would bring [my kidney function] back up and wanted to stop the disease.". Diane was hospitalized for ...

Sister number two is a train-wreck. She is 49 and has autoimmune nephritis caused by anti GBM, an autoantibody that attacks the basement membrane in the glomerulus (kidney). She has had this for 13 years now and will hopefully be getting a kidney transplant when the time is right. Her diet is pretty restricted right now because of minimal renal function. Like many of the type Os here, she sort of ate like a vegetarian long before she became sick. Anyway, now she eats more like a type O should and does better despite eating a bit more protein for impaired renal function. She, BTW also has no weight issues either. And I suspect that she is probably an Explorer, due to many allergies to drugs and supplements. Despite having so many health issues she looks great and is able to get a good amount of exercise, but she has to avoid the sun because of a lupus like syndrome ...

The main idea of this data set is to prepare the algorithm of the expert system, which will perform the presumptive diagnosis of two diseases of urinary system. It will be the example of diagnosing of the acute inflammations of urinary bladder and acute nephritises. For better understanding of the problem let us consider definitions of both diseases given by medics. Acute inflammation of urinary bladder is characterised by sudden occurrence of pains in the abdomen region and the urination in form of constant urine pushing, micturition pains and sometimes lack of urine keeping. Temperature of the body is rising, however most often not above 38C. The excreted urine is turbid and sometimes bloody. At proper treatment, symptoms decay usually within several days. However, there is inclination to returns. At persons with acute inflammation of urinary bladder, we should expect that the illness will turn into protracted form ...

Pseudotumor of the kidney, also referred to as acute focal bacterial nephritis (AFBN) is a disease characterised by a focal mass in the kidney due to bacterial infection. The incidence of AFBN is not known. Most patients with AFBN have non-specific symptoms. A classical triad includes fever, abdominal pain and a palpable mass. Most pediatric patients have pre-existing vesico-ureteral reflux. Other predisposing diseases are infections of the urinary tract, diabetes mellitus, aplastic anemia and atonic bladder. Although a variety of micro-organisms are reported, the most common pathogen causing AFBN is Escherichia coli. Negative cultures have also been reported. Negative blood and urine cultures therefore do not rule out the possibility of AFBN, and further examination should always be done. Abdominal ultrasonography is the best screening and diagnostic method, showing a focal hypo-echoic mass, disrupting the normal renal structures. Since the use of ultrasonography, the number of recorded cases ...

The first condition for BUN increasing is renal dysfunction caused by Acute Nephritis, Chronic Nephritis, Toxic Nephritis, serious pyelonephritis, Renal Tuberculosis, renal vascular sclerosis, congenital PKD and renal tumors. BUN increasing has an important role in diagnosing Uremia. The level of BUN increasing is consistent with the serious condition of disease. For example, at the stage of azotemia, BUN is above 9mmo/l, but at the stage of Uremia BUN can be more than 20mmol/l. So BUN increasing can help to evaluate which stage the diseases condition has developed into ...

The kidney is affected to some degree in almost all patients with SLE. Renal disease is associated with higher morbidity and mortality rates. The study of the prognosis of lupus nephritis has underscored the potential importance of a number of demographic (sex, race, age), clinical, and histological parameters (WHO class, activity, and chronicity indices) which contribute to the outcome. SLE occurs more commonly in women (90%) than in men, and age at onset ranges from 16 to 50 years 8. In the present study, 89.6% of the patients with lupus nephritis were women and mean age onset of lupus nephritis was 25.8 10.2 years. Genetic factors are important in lupus nephritis, with a strong racial preponderance. The prevalence and mortality of lupus are ten times higher in black women than in whites 5. In contrast to the literature, our study showed a higher incidence of lupus nephritis among white patients (76.7%). Many clinical parameters have been used to estimate the prognosis of lupus nephritis. ...
Diffuse proliferative nephritis (DPN) or glomerulonephritis (DPGN) is a type of glomerulonephritis that is the most serious form of renal lesions in SLE and is also the most common, occurring in 35% to 60% of patients. Most of the glomeruli show endothelial and mesangial proliferation affecting the entire glomerulus, leading to diffuse hypercellularity of the glomeruli, producing in some cases epithelial crescents that fill Bowmans space. When extensive, immune complexes create an overall thickening of the capillary wall, resembling rigid "wire loops" on routine light microscopy. Electron microscopy reveals electron-dense subendothelial immune complexes (between endothelium and basement membrane). Immune complexes can be visualized by staining with fluorescent antibodies directed against immunoglobulins or complement, resulting in a granular fluorescent staining pattern. In due course, glomerular injury gives rise to scarring (glomerulosclerosis). Most of these patients have hematuria with ...
Lupus nephritis, which has various histological patterns and variable clinical outcomes, is one of the most important complications of systemic lupus nephritis (SLE). This pathogenetic mechanism in each histologically different type of lupus nephritis (LN) remains unclear. Although SLE is suggested to be a Th2-driven disease, elevation of both Th1 and Th2 cytokines occurs in both humans and mice, suggesting that SLE is a complex disease driven by different lymphocyte subsets with high heterogeneity of clinical manifestations and organ involvement. Recent findings in LN elucidate an essential role for the Th1, IL-17 producing T cells and Th17 cells in the development of diffuse proliferative lupus nephritis (DPLN), and Th2 cytokine in that of membranous lupus nephritis (MLN). These data support the hypothesis that individual Th1/Th2 balance is one of the critical determinants for histopathology of LN.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Heterogeneity of macrophage activation in anti-Thy-1.1 nephritis. AU - Minto, A.. AU - Erwig, Lars Peter. AU - Rees, Andrew Jackson. PY - 2003/11. Y1 - 2003/11. N2 - Macrophages infiltrating glomeruli in telescoped nephrotoxic nephritis are programmed. The purpose of this study was to assess whether macrophages infiltrating glomeruli of rats with passively induced injury become similarly programmed, and to determine whether macrophage commitment is an early event. Glomerular macrophages isolated from rats with resolving and proliferative anti-Thy-1 nephritis were examined for nitric oxide (NO) generation and expression of lysosomal hydrolases. After a single injection of Thy-1 antibody the cells generated large amounts of NO that was attenuated ex vivo by transforming growth factor-beta and other anti-inflammatory cytokines. In contrast macrophages infiltrating glomeruli immediately after a second injection of Thy-1 antibody generated No spontaneously and were unresponsive to ...
Nephritis refers to inflammation of one or both kidneys. It can be caused by infection, but is most commonly caused by autoimmune disorders that affect the major organs. For example, those with lupus are at a much higher risk for developing nephritis. In rare cases nephritis can be genetically inherited, though it may not present in childhood. As the kidneys inflame, they begin to excrete needed protein from the body into the urine stream. Nephritis also causes additional problems like water retention, as the kidneys cannot function properly to rid the body of water. Water retention or edema, can further cause swelling of the feet, ankles, legs, and hands.. ...

Refractory lupus nephritis, broadly defined as failure to attain clinical remission after appropriate induction immunosuppressive therapy, is associated with an increased risk of progression to end-stage kidney disease and mortality. This is a challenging issue in clinical practice, as modern induction therapy despite proven efficacy can still be associated with treatment failure. Moreover, newer therapies have failed in recent years to displace or even match existing protocols for effective induction of remission. Refractory disease is generally assessed on the basis of clinical parameters, which may be unreliable, and renal biopsy, which is often not performed in a standard or timely fashion. Persisting histological inflammation in 30%-50% of patients who have attained clinical remission highlights the disparity between clinical and immunological response to therapy. The lack of an international consensus regarding what constitutes refractory lupus nephritis compounds clinician indecision ...
