Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by recurrent episodes of painful inflammation in the abdomen, chest, or joints. The coexistence of multiple myeloma (MM) and FMF is an extremely rare event. Here, we report a case of FMF with concurrent MM. A 63-year-old woman was diagnosed with FMF since 15 years earlier. She was admitted with a complaint of low back pain. Regarding the presence of back pain, anemia, hypercalcemia, and kidney failure, a diagnosis of MM was suspected...

Acute interstitial nephritis (AIN) is known as a common cause of acute kidney injury, found in 15% to 27% of kidney biopsies. Drug-induced AIN is currently the most common cause of AIN. The most common medications causing AIN are antibiotics and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. We describe a case of Citrullus colocynthis (herbal remedy for diabetes mellitus and weight reduction) that induced AIN. A 31-year-old woman with major thalassemia, diabetes mellitus, and hepatitis C infection was admitted because of flank pain and unexpected increase in serum creatinine level...

INTRODUCTION: Embryogenesis of the kidney glomeruli, especially its vascular component, has not been well documented. Glomeruli capillary tuft is surrounded and enveloped by visceral epithelial cells, which is a unique portal system that connects afferent with efferent arteriole without interaction with venular circulation. We hypothesized that the portal system embryologically has developed by extension of the intima of afferent arteriole into the stroma of glomerulus. We also hypothesized that juxtaglomeruli apparatus was developed from remnants of smooth muscle cells of the media of afferent arteriole at the anastomosing site with the Bowman capsule entrance...

Aspartame is one of the most popular artificial sweeteners over the world. Although its consumption is considered to be safe in acceptable daily intake ranges which were set by the United States Food and Drugs Administration and other regulatory agencies, there are lots of controversies regarding its safety nowadays. Some of the recent experimental and epidemiological studies showed that consumption of aspartame may causes some adverse health effects including obesity, metabolic syndrome, and alteration in gut microbiota...

Kidney transplantation for amyloidosis remains a contentious issue. Recurrence of amyloidosis is one of the risks of transplantation. Chronic active antibody-mediated rejection is an important cause of chronic allograft dysfunction. A 47-year-old woman underwent kidney transplantation due to renal AA amyloidosis with unknown etiology. Six years posttransplantation, a kidney biopsy showed AA amyloidosis with chronic active antibody-mediated rejection. Donor-specific antibody class II was positive. The patient underwent intravenous plasmapheresis and treatment with rituximab and colchicine...

Foreign body reaction is a tissue response against implanted materials. We described for the first time the eosinophilic peritonitis and foreign body giant cell reaction to dialysis catheter in a nonatopic child on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. We found tenderness, redness, and swelling without purulent discharge around the peritoneal catheter; increased eosinophil count in cloudy dialysis fluid; and blood and hyperechoic granulomatous formation appearance surrounding the peritoneal catheter on ultrasonography and foreign body giant cell reaction to dialysis catheter in pathologic examination of granulomatous lesionin in our patient...

INTRODUCTION: One of the most important issues in patients with chronic kidney disease is fluid retention and volume overload accompanied by retention of nitrogenous waste products and some electrolytes. Bowel fluid contains high levels of urea, creatinine, uric acid, and electrolytes, which make it a potential candidate for intestinal excretion of nitrogen wastes and electrolytes. Cross-linked polyelectrolyte (CLP) is a polymer that, given orally, absorbs excess fluid, electrolyte, and nitrogenous waste products...

INTRODUCTION: Hyperuricemia is common in approximately 50% of patients with kidney failure due to decreased uric acid excretion, and it has been recently known as an independent factor in the progression of renal insufficiency. Allopurinol inhibits the production of uric acid. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of allopurinol on chronic kidney disease progression. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a clinical trial, patients with stages 3 and 4 of chronic kidney disease were divided into two groups to receive allopurinol, 100 mg, daily and placebo for 12 months...
