Fibronectin glomerulopathy is a rare autosomal dominant inherited glomerular disease associated with massive deposition of fibronectin. We recently diagnosed fibronectin glomerulopathy in a 29-year-old woman presenting nephrotic syndrome. Genetic analysis of fibronectin 1 gene showed heterozygosity for the Y973C mutation. However, this mutation was not found in her parents. She had stable renal function but persistent nephrotic proteinuria after one-year follow-up.

Chorea-acanthocytosis (ChAc) is the most common subtype of neuroacanthocytosis syndrome, characterized by the presence of acanthocytes and neurological disorders. It is thought to be caused by VPS13A mutations. Characteristic movement disorders in ChAc is choreiform movements affecting both trunk and extremities and prominent orolingual dyskinesia is pathognomonic. Acanthocytosis in peripheral blood smear, elevated serum creatine kinase and atrophy of heads of caudate nuclei and dilation of the anterior horn of the lateral ventricles in magnetic resonance imaging could assist the diagnosis of ChAc...

Hypoxic pulmonary hypertension (HPH) is a common complication in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), sleep-disordered breathing, or dwellers in high altitude. The exact mechanisms underlying the development of HPH still remain unclear. Reactive oxygen species (ROS), hypoxia inducible factors (HIF), and potassium channels (KV ) are believed as the main factors during the development of HPH. We propose that the "ROS/Kv/HIF axis" may play an important initiating role in the development of HPH...
