Immunosuppression is a well-known risk factor for malignancy. Renal transplant patients are at high risk for cancer in the native kidneys especially in the presence of acquired cystic disease. We report a case highlighting the importance of screening for renal malignancy in renal transplant patients.

A 14-year-old female presented with oliguric dialysis requiring kidney injury due to acute poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis (PSGN) with hypertension strongly suggestive of atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) with microangiopathic hemolytic anemia and elevated factor H antibody levels. Renal biopsy revealed crescentic glomerulonephritis with typical subepithelial, intramembranous and mesangial electron-dense deposits (humps) on electron microscopy. She was treated with glucocorticoids following which she recovered, remained dialysis free and her Factor H antibody levels and depressed complement 3 levels normalized...

With the development of renal replacement therapy, cardiovascular complications have become the major cause of death in patients with polycystic kidney disease (PKD). Atrial myxoma is a cardiac abnormality that has been rarely reported with PKD. The presence of atrial myxomas is not free of complication as it can cause cardiac outflow obstruction and embolic manifestations ending up in death. Here, we report a case of a 44-year-old female who presented with PKD associated with atrial myxoma. A 44-year-old female presented to the emergency department unconscious with a history of sudden onset of dizziness and palpitation...

A paradoxical reaction during anti-tuberculosis (anti-TB) therapy is commonly reported in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). However, a similar reaction to anti-TB therapy can also occur in patients without HIV, especially in patients who have undergone solid organ transplantation. A 65-year-old woman who underwent kidney transplantation six months prior presented to our emergency room with progressive paraparesis. She had been diagnosed with drug-susceptible miliary TB and had undergone two weeks of treatment with anti-TB medication...

Renal involvement is the most common extrahepatic manifestation of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. While membranous nephropathy is the most frequent, the association with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is not as strong, and only a few cases have been described in the literature. In particular, the tip variant FSGS is extremely rare and to our knowledge has not previously been described in association with chronic HBV infection. The management of such cases can be challenging. Immunosuppression may lead to enhanced viral replication and flare-up of the hepatic disease...

Melioidosis is an emerging infectious disease in many countries including Bangladesh. Genitourinary infection due to Burkholderia pseudomallei is a well-recognized manifestation although less commonly reported in Asia than Australia. Here, we report case history of a 38-year-old Bangladeshi farmer, diagnosed with IgA nephropathy and on oral prednisolone, who presented with features of urinary tract infection. Diagnostic workup confirmed genitourinary infection due to B. pseudomallei and diabetes mellitus. He was treated with ceftazidime followed by the combination of co-trimoxazole and doxycycline...

Membranous nephropathy (MN) may occur in the transplanted kidney, either as recurrent disease in patients who had MN as the cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in the native kidney or de novo, in patients who had another cause of ESRD initially. The reported incidence of recurrent MN ranges between 10% and 45%. Clinical manifestations of recurrent MN are typically observed 13-15 months after transplantation, although they may be observed much earlier (within weeks). Our patient had a recurrence in three weeks...

ABO incompatibility and preformed antibodies against the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) are two impermissible barriers to a successful renal transplantation, especially in highly sensitized patient population. With the availability of effective desensitization regimens, good patient and graft outcomes have been reported. As transfusion medicine specialists we report our experience, where patient presented with dual histocompatibility barriers i.e. ABO incompatibility along with preformed donor-specific antibodies (DSA) and negative complement dependent lymphocytotoxicity (CDC) HLA crossmatch...

The conducted study aimed to determine the incidence and clinical profile of acute kidney injury (AKI) in hospitalized patients using the AKI Network (AKIN) criteria. This prospective observational study was conducted at the Pediatric ward and pediatric Intensive Care Unit of a tertiary level teaching hospital in North India. The participants were 763 consecutive patients aged three months to 12 years from January 2014 to October 2015 and were assessed for eligibility. Of these, 163 patients were excluded from the study...

IgA nephropathy (IgAN) remains one of the most common glomerular lesions, which has a striking geographic distribution and is the most common form of primary glomerular disease in Asia. However, the exact prevalence or clinicopathological spectrum of IgAN in India is not well documented. This retrospective study analyzed the presentation in 126 patients of primary IgAN out of 298 native kidney biopsies (42.28%) performed over a period of three years (2013-2015). The patients were followed up for three months...

Organ shortage is the greatest challenge facing the field of organ transplantation today. We aimed to study the attitude and knowledge toward organ donation among health-care professionals (HCPs) in rural India. The study was conducted in a rural town in Konkan region of Maharashtra in India. A questionnaire testing knowledge and attitude about various aspects of organ donation was distributed to HCPs. One hundred percent of the respondents were aware about organ donation. Nearly 40.6% and 21.9% believed that a healthy person and a cardiac dead person can be donors, respectively...

Native kidney biopsy reports in previous studies that are mostly originated in Western countries show various results in different parts of the world. In this study, we aimed to determine the prevalence of renal biopsy disorders in Iran and compare it with that of other studies in the world. This cross-sectional study evaluated consecutive native kidney biopsies performed in four centers in Isfahan, Iran, from 2009 to 2014. We also reviewed other relevant studies in Iran and the world. Overall, 1547 renal biopsies were reviewed; 493 cases were excluded (transplant or re-biopsy cases) and 1054 cases (43...
