Interstitial nephritis and immune complex-mediated glomerulonephritis are the two common renal manifestations of primary Sjögren's syndrome (SS). Here, we discuss three cases of primary SS where presenting manifestation was distal renal tubular acidosis. The possibility of an underlying autoimmune disorder should be considered in a patient presenting with distal tubular acidosis or recurrent hypokalemic periodic paralysis as treatment of primary disease improves the outcome of illness.

Peritoneal dialysis (PD)-associated peritonitis is an important contributor to morbidity and mortality; Gram-positive bacteria constitute the most frequent associated pathogens (45%-60%) followed by Gram-negative bacteria (25%-40%) and fungal infection (3%-6%). Salmonella peritonitis is an extremely rare cause of peritonitis (0.15%). Peritonitis attributed to Salmonella has been reported only in four cases. Herewith, we report a 68-year-old Sudanese female who presented to our PD unit with abdominal pain and diarrhea and was diagnosed to have Salmonella peritonitis...

Adenine phosphoribosyltransferase deficiency is a rare, inherited autosomal recessive disease presenting with 2,8-dihydroxyadenine (DHA) urolithiasis, DHA nephropathy, and chronic kidney disease. The presence of DHA crystals in urine and renal biopsy is pathognomonic of the disease. We report a 23-year-old female with acute renal failure and nephrotic proteinuria. Urinalysis showed reddish brown, round crystals with dark outline, and central spicules consistent with 2,8-DHA crystals. Renal biopsy showed membranous nephropathy and 2,8-DHA nephropathy...

Secondary amyloidosis Amyloid A (AA) is an infrequent but a severe complication of Crohn's disease (CD). This complication results from the activity of the underlying inflammation disease to form amyloid fibril deposits in tissues. We present a case of a 34-year-old female patient with CD treated by azathioprine with inactive disease for three years and who developed a nephrotic syndrome secondary to AA amyloidosis. The treatment by infliximab for one year leads to a complete remission of the nephrotic syndrome...

Paraneoplastic glomerulopathy (PG) includes a group of glomerular lesions that are not directly related to tumor burden, invasion, or metastasis, but induced by products from tumor cells such as hormones, growth factors, cytokines, and tumor antigens. PG was first described by Galloway in 1922, in which nephrotic syndrome (NS) secondary to Hodgkin's lymphoma was reported. They can present before, at the time of diagnosis, during remission, or at relapse of the hematological malignancies. We present three cases of paraneoplastic NS associated with hematological malignancies...

A significant proportion of individuals with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) will have clinical or laboratory evidence of renal involvement at some point in the course of their disease. Lupus nephritis (LN) is one of the more important systemic manifestations of SLE and although progression to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) is not usually the norm, a significant minority of patients will do so, some in a rather dramatic fashion. It is in such instances that LN constitutes a true nephrologic emergency. Gratifyingly, it is rarely a silent emergency and heightened awareness amongst clinicians about its unpredictable course should lead to earlier recognition and intervention...

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) presenting as diabetes insipidus (DI) is a rare association; there is a case report of neurogenic DI in patients of SLE; however, SLE and nephrogenic DI has not been reported in literature. We present a case of SLE presenting as nephrogenic DI. We report a case who presented with DI (nephrogenic) and fulfilled criteria for SLE and Sjögren's syndrome with renal tubular acidosis.

With resurgence of multidrug resistance (MDR) bacteria and no new novel broad-spectrum antibiotic in research pipeline, usage of older generation antibiotics, once discarded due to their toxicity profile are becoming popular again. Often these drugs are the only option left in managing MDR bacteria-related sepsis. Colistin is one of such antibiotic which is often used in recent times after decades of its avoidance due to its diverse toxicity profile. In this case report, we present a rare myasthenic syndrome like neuromuscular complication developed in a patient after receiving colistin for treatment of MDR Klebsiella-related urosepsis...

Abdominal symptoms are common in patients with lupus nephritis and are often attributed to drugs or uremia per se. Lupus mesenteric vasculitis (LMV) or lupus enteritis is a rare entity reported in patients with active systemic lupus erythematosus. It usually occurs in patients with a long-standing history of lupus with high disease activity. Usually, small bowel is predominantly affected. The stomach and rectum are spared in view of significant collateral circulation. Here, we describe an 18-year-old boy who presented with nephrotic syndrome without any extrarenal features of lupus...

Although the relationship between Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) and renal transplant has been well described, there are rare cases of KS concurrent with membranous glomerulonephritis or other glomerular diseases. In this report, a patient with membranous glomerulonephritis that accepted long-term prednisolone and cyclosporine immunosuppressive therapy developed skin KS. Withdrawal of immunosuppressive treatment resulted in the disappearance of KS.

This is a case report of a 68-year-old hypertensive, diabetic woman who was on regular thrice weekly hemodialysis (HD). She presented with gradually worsening left lower limb pain and swelling. Clinical examination revealed significant edema over the left calf and ankle joint with significant calf tenderness. Extensive workup including magnetic resonance imaging of the lower limb and venous Doppler failed to show any significant abnormality. In view of developing papular lesions over the area, skin biopsy was performed, which finally confirmed reactive perforating collagenosis...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) in the elderly is characterized by high mortality. The objective of this study is to identify the causes of death in the elderly with AKI. This is a prospective cohort study with a descriptive purpose which was carried out during the period from January 2009 to December 2014 in the Department of Nephrology-Internal Medicine of Treichville University Hospital. The diagnosis of AKI was made on the basis of serum creatinine (SCr) values determined during hospitalization, according to KDIGO classification...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is one of the leading causes of chronic diseases globally, with rising incidence and prevalence. It is a major risk factor for cerebrovascular disease and coronary artery disease, which are the main causes of death in this population. The etiology of CKD is varied. This study was performed to evaluate the various etiologies of CKD among patients presenting to the Department of Nephrology, Guwahati Medical College, a tertiary referral center. A total of 5718 CKD patients were evaluated to identify the cause of CKD...
