A Best Practice Guideline about Dialysis fluid purity was developed under the leadership of the Spanish Society of Nephrology in 2004. The second edition revised Guideline considered new evidences and International Standard. The Guideline has established recommendations for standards for preparing dialysate: water, concentrates and hemodialysis proportioning systems. This Guideline is based on the ISO13959, European Pharmacopoeia, the Real Farmacopea Española, the AAMI Standards and Recommended Practices, European Best Practice Guidelines for Haemodialysis, literature reviews, according to their level of evidence, and the opinion of the expert Spanish group...

Hereditary renal amyloidosis is an autosomal dominant condition with considerable overlap with other amyloidosis types. Differential diagnosis is complicated, but is relevant for prognosis and treatment. We describe a patient with nephrotic syndrome and progressive renal failure, who had a mother with renal amiloidosis. Renal biopsy revealed amyloid deposits in glomerular space, with absence of light chains and protein AA. We suspected amyloidosis with fibrinogen A alpha chain deposits, which is the most frequent cause of hereditary amyloidosis in Europe, with a glomerular preferential affectation...

Amyloid Light-chain (AL) amyloidosis is a very rare disease. Nutritional and pharmaconutrional aspects are described. Nutrition repletion of malnourished AL patients is an essential strategy for improving treatment efficacy and clinical outcomes. Early diagnosis of AL amiloidosis is difficult to establish due to the fact that signs and symptoms appearing mimic other processes that delay the final correct histological diagnosis. Untreated patients with this disease have a dismal outcome, with a median survival of 10-14 months from diagnosis...

Splenic rupture (SR) is a rare adverse event observed in patients treated with G-CSF as a peripheral hematopoietic stem cell (PHSC) mobilizing agent, mostly in myeloma multiple and amiloidosis; to date, to our knowledge, it has not been previously described in plasma-cell leukemia (PCL). We report a case of a woman with PCL, who presented a SR after PHSC mobilization with Cyclophosphamide+G-CSF. The spleen removed showed hematopoietic foci and amiloid material. In the course of a second mobilization, 2 months after, the patient died from sepsis...

Amyloidosis, 150 years after being identified, still remains a mysterious disease, full of mystery, question marks and challenges, almost always ignored from the start, with terrible symptoms and terrible prognosis. The mechanics of the formation. persistence and setting of the amyloid fibrils are still under discussion. This article wishes to point out some of the main characteristics of this disease and the involved proteins by referring to the history. The pathogenesis, the histology, the diagnosis and a few aspects of the prognosis of this disease in the hope that future research will bring to light the answers for the mystery of amyloidosis along with more efficient therapies...

INTRODUCTION: Finnish amyloid variety is a rare familial amiloidosis polyneuropathy essentially observed in Finland. It concerns about six hundred people in the world in which five hundred reside in Finland. OBSERVATION: We report a case of a 58-year-old French woman with a 10-year history of lattice cornea dystrophy. She consulted in January 2004 for impaired swallowing, facial paralysis principally of the right superior territory and symptoms of arthritis which had developed a few months earlier...

Amyloid cardiomyopathy is myocardial infiltrative disorder which mostly has been seen as the consequence of systemic amiloidosis. The diffuse global myocardial infiltration of nonfunctional amyloid displaces the contractile myocites giving rice to relaxation abnormality and diastolic dysfunction of restrictive or congestive type of both ventricles, but more frequently with right-sided congestion, while systolic left ventricular function deteriorates late in disease process. We report a patient with amyloid cardiomyopathy and nephrotic syndrome underlying primary amiloidosis...

The primary bladder amiloidosis is an uncommon pathology, not existing in the world more than 150 published cases, being even more exceptional the secondary bladder amiloidosis being described around 25 cases. The secondary bladder amiloidosis associates in most from the patients to arthritis reumatoide of long evolution. The diagnoses clinical it is difficult, being necessary the differential diagnosis with the bladder tumour. The pathological study and inmunohistochemics, confirm the diagnosis. We present the case of a patient that I debut with frank hematuria, hemodynamic uncertainty and renal inadequacy that it required combined treatment, doctor and surgical for the resolution of their square...

Plasma cell neoplasia occurs as a result of the expansion of an immunoglobulin-secreting B-cells clones, known as monoclonal component or M component. Malignant neoplasias include multiple myeloma and Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia, while premalignant conditions comprise monoclonal gammopathies of unknown significance (MGUS). MGUS present a monoclonal component with no signs of multiple myeloma, Waldenström macroglobulinemia, primary amyloidosis or other disorders. Pathological, radiological and clinical features are required for the diagnosis...

Here is an observation data on systemic AL-amiloidosis with primary lesion of lungs and vessels (a false hemorrhagic syndrome, ischemic insult in the region of middle cerebral artery). At the same time lesions of kidneys and heart became of minor significance. Amiloid lesion of lungs was characterized by unusual combination of symptoms: a galloping hydrothorax, a vast focus in the consolidation of pulmonary tissue with focuses of calcification, relapsing pneumothorax.

We present a patient with primary tracheobronquial amiloidosis diffuse, presenting with asthma-like dysnea. The diagnosis was made through the broncoscopy and biopsy of infiltrated bronchial mucosa.

We present a member of a family with glycogen deposit disease (GDD) type III (Forbes-Cori's disease) confirmed postmortem through enzymatic analysis of the hepatic and muscular tissues, coinciding with a Crohn's disease associated to ankylopoietic spondylitis, with final development of an extended secondary amiloidosis, all of these diagnosis established in life of the patient and verified in necropsy. We comment this rare finding, the absence of similar cases in the bibliography and the fortuitous nature of this association given the impossibility to suggest another relationship...

This is a case report of primary localized amyloidosis of the urinary bladder. The patient was a 73-year-old woman who had relapse of this disease three times. Primary localized amyloidosis of the urinary bladder is an especially rare disease and the prognosis is excellent in most cases. We performed transurethral resection of the bladder tumor (TUR-Bt) each time and we are following up this patient carefully. After the last TUR-Bt, she has had no recurrence for 7 months. Considering multifocal recurrence and excellent prognosis, we stress the importance of TUR-Bt for diagnosis and careful follow up...

The presentation deals with the data of a morphological study on the brain vessels in senile dementia (19 cases) which are compared to the corresponding data of mentally healthy individuals of different ages. It was displayed that in the arterial vessels along with collagenous and elastic fibres there were pseudoelastic structures subjected during the involutional process to hyperplasy. The author found that the inner elastic membrane did not undergo pathological changes either in the involutional process, or in the cerebral congophyl angiopathy, which was characteristic of senile dementia...
