Anemia after kidney transplant is not uncommon. This paper reports a case of unexplained anemia in a kidney transplant recipient that persisted for more than two months, and that did not respond to recombinant human erythropoietin treatment but was successfully treated after diagnosing Parvovirus B19 (ParvoV B19) infection. A middle-aged male underwent living-unrelated kidney transplantation from Pakistan in April 2015. He was on triple immuno-suppression therapy consisting of prednisolone, tacrolimus, and mycophenolate mofetil...

Autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is a systemic disorder associated with various extrarenal complications. There is little information regarding the occurrence and distribution of cardiovascular abnormalities during the course of ADPKD. The major cardiovascular complications of ADPKD include valvulopathies and vascular ectasia. Aneurysm of the atrial septum (ASA) is a very rare manifestation in ADPKD. A 37-year-old woman who was diagnosed with ADPKD was admitted to our hospital for advanced renal failure...

Fungal peritonitis is a serious complication of peritoneal dialysis (PD) leading to loss of ultrafiltration and discontinuation of PD treatment. The most frequently isolated fungi are Candida albicans and, filamentous fungi such Alternaria alternata species are found only rarely. We report the case of a 75-year-old woman who developed peritonitis due to this black fungus.

Cryptococcus neoformans is an opportunistic fungal infection affects predominately the central nervous system in HIV patients and patients with other immunocompromised states. It has rarely been described in immunocompetent patients. It is a serious infection with a high of mortality rate. We describe a case of a 48-year-old patient diagnosed with lupus nephritis treated with corticosteroids and mycophenolate mofetil who developed central nervous cryptococcosis complicated by septicemia. She died despite the use of antifungals...

Poisoning due to insecticides such as organophosphorus and super vasmol presenting as acute kidney injury (AKI) is well-reported. Poisoning due to fipronil (phenylpyrazole) is known to present with mild neurological and dermatological complaints. However, fipronil poisoning presenting as AKI and hepatic dysfunction is not known. Herein, we are presenting a case of fipronil poisoning presenting with severe AKI.

The hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is a heterogeneous group of similar entities characterized by microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, and acute renal failure (ARF) and is an important cause of ARF in childhood. Mutations have been reported in the complement regulatory protein factor H in both sporadic and familial HUS and have been identified in 10-20% of cases. Inherited HUS is unusual. We report the occurrence of HUS in two siblings after delivery, complicated with ARF and with a good outcome...

Infection-related glomerulonephritis (IRGN) is an immune-mediated glomerulo-nephritis, most commonly caused by bacterial infections. Although there is an increased incidence of infectious episodes in renal transplant recipients, IRGN as a cause of de novo glomerulonephritis is rarely seen probably due to impaired immunity. We hereby report a 28-year-old male renal transplant recipient, who developed IRGN following impetigenous skin lesions after six years of transplant. He developed rapid worsening of allograft function and was started on hemodialysis...

A 22-year-old nondiabetic young Indian female presented with short history of dyspnea, anorexia, and bilateral leg swelling. Her laboratory evaluation showed severe anemia, serum creatinine of 11.89 mg/dL, nephrotic range proteinuria and microscopic hematuria with 6-8 red blood cell/high-power field. Renal biopsy showed brightly eosinophilic, periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) positive, silver negative, and fuschinophilic deposits in the mesangium extending around the capillary loops with thickening of the basement membrane...

Naphthalene poisoning is an uncommon poisoning due to its pungent smell, taste, insolubility in water, and poor absorption from the gut. It rarely occurs in suicidal attempts in adults and in accidental ingestion by children. We present a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge encountered while treating a child with naphthalene-induced acute severe hemolytic anemia and acute kidney injury from accidental ingestion.

Systemic onset juvenile idiopathic arthritis (SOJIA) can be associated with proteinuria due to various renal pathologies. We report two pediatric cases with SOJIA and nephrotic syndrome secondary to renal amyloidosis, a very rare complication in children. Once present, amyloidosis heralds a poor prognosis for the patient, though early detection may allow some improvement if the inflammatory arthritis is controlled.

Anti-glomerular basement membrane (anti-GBM) disease is a systemic autoimmune disorder characterized by circulating IgG antibodies (rarely IgA and IgM) to the carboxyterminal, noncollagenous 1 (NC1) domain of type IV collagen of GBM also known as Goodpasture antigen. Patients typically present with rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (RPGN) and pulmonary hemorrhage in the presence of which it is referred to as Goodpasture's disease. Anti-GBM disease has been reported to coexist with pauci-immune antineutrophil cytoplasmic autoantibody-positive glomerulonephritis and membranous glomerulopathy...

Antiglomerular basement membrane (anti-GBM) disease is an uncommon autoimmune disease characterized by the presence of IgG autoantibodies targeting the alpha-3 chain of type IV collagen. Some of the atypical forms of the disease have been described. Herein, we describe a case of atypical anti-GBM in a 27-year-old Saudi male who presented with lower limb edema, gross hematuria, elevated serum creatinine concentration, and nephrotic-range proteinuria. All serology tests were negative, except for anti-GBM which was weakly positive...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a public health priority worldwide; however, its prevalence and incidence are difficult to assess. In Africa, few studies have been conducted on the prevalence of CKD. This study sought to describe the epidemiological characteristics and profile of CKD, as well as the related risk factors in Guéoul, a semi-urban zone in Senegal. An observational, cross-sectional, and descriptive study was conducted in Guéoul city in Senegal from November 1, 2012, to December 10, 2012, according to the WHO STEPS approach...

Testing for proteinuria is used to screen for diabetic nephropathy. However, significant proportion of diabetics has normal urine protein excretion despite impaired renal function. We aimed to determine the factors predicting increased urine protein excretion in patients with type 2 diabetes. This was a cross-sectional study of 358 type 2 diabetics attending the diabetes clinic of a teaching hospital in Lagos. Data regarding patients' demographic characteristics, and disease history were retrieved. Clinical measurement and samples for determination of plasma creatinine, and urine protein/creatinine ratio were obtained...
