Pyonephrosis in the course of hydronephrosis usually provides to total or near-total loss of renal function. In adults pyonephrosis usually results from urolithiasis. In children usually congenital urinary tract anomalies are present as contributing factors. CASE REPORT: 6-year old girl was admitted to the hospital because of 2-day history of high fever, abdominal pain, progressive deterioration of general condition and ultrasonographically (US) detected left hydronephrosis. US on admission showed grossly dilated left renal collecting system together with extensive echogenic debris and laboratory tests highly elevated inflammatory markers...

The glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is widely considered the best overall index of renal function. The Schwartz equations are designed for measuring the GFR in children between 1 and 16 years of age. In the present study, we investigated the percentiles of the GFR in a general population of Iranian children with no known renal disease via the 2009 Schwartz equations (updated and combined equations). Between 2010 and 2011, we selected 687 children aged 7-16 years from the Iranian province of Isfahan. Blood samples were analyzed for blood urea nitrogen, creatinine, and cystatin C...

Introduction: Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is one of the most common ailments in children. Evidence-based guidelines recommend conservative treatment in children with VUR, followed by endoscopic surgery in those with breakthrough febrile urinary tract infections (UTIs). Despite this fact, the management of VUR is still controversial. Our objective is to evaluate the conservative strategy in children with primary VUR in terms of renal function and scarring, and identify factors associated with poor prognosis in those children...

BACKGROUND: Plasmodium knowlesi is the most common cause of human malaria in Malaysia. Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a frequent complication. AKI of any cause can have long-term consequences, including increased risk of chronic kidney disease, adverse cardiovascular events and increased mortality. Additional management strategies are therefore needed to reduce the frequency and severity of AKI in malaria. In falciparum malaria, cell-free haemoglobin (CFHb)-mediated oxidative damage contributes to AKI...

Background: Vesicoureteric reflux (VUR) is one of the most common anomalies encountered in pediatric urology. The concept of renal functional reserve (RFR) as the ability of the kidney to increase glomerular filtration rate (GFR) following a protein load was introduced in the 1980s. Aim: This study aims to evaluate RFR using 99 Tc diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (DTPA) as the filtration agent for GFR estimation in children with VUR. Materials and Methods: RFR was estimated in 53 children, of which 31 patients had unilateral VUR (Group I) and 22 patients had bilateral VUR (Group II), by subtracting baseline GFR from stimulated GFR following an intravenous protein load...

BACKGROUND: The gold standard treatment for primary obstructive megaureter (POM) with declining renal function, worsening obstruction, or recurrent infections is ureteral re-implantation with or without tapering. In infants, open surgery can be technically demanding and associated with significant morbidity. We conducted a systematic review of the literature with special interest in endoscopic management of POM and its outcomes. METHODS: A search was conducted of the MEDLINE/Ovid, PubMed, Embase, and Web of Science databases...

Nephrotic syndrome (NS) is the most common primary glomerular disease among children. It runs a relapsing course involving prolonged periods of treatment with corticosteroids and other immunosuppressive medications. Soluble urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (suPAR) has been regarded as an inflammatory as well as a permeability factor. The aim of our study was to evaluate serum suPAR levels in children with NS and its relation to steroid responsiveness. Our study was carried out on 75 children who were already diagnosed as having NS; they were classified into three groups (steroid sensitive, steroid dependent, and steroid resistant)...

OBJECTIVES: To compare the prognostic value of fetal serum biochemistry and fetal urine biochemistry in predicting renal outcome in LUTO. METHODS: We retrospectively studied renal outcome following a prenatal diagnosis of LUTO in cases for which both fetal blood and fetal urine were sampled. We classified the renal outcome as either "favorable", when postnatal renal function was normal, or "adverse", in the case of postnatal chronic renal failure or when renal histological lesions were present at autopsy in the case of termination of pregnancy...

PURPOSE: Hypothyroidism is a clinical syndrome that can lead to elevated levels of serum creatinine and uric acid by causing impaired renal function. Although many studies have been carried out on the relationship between overt hypothyroidism and renal function, few studies have been conducted on subclinical hypothyroidism and renal function, especially in pediatric patients. For this reason, we studied this issue in children, so as to provide a background for more useful research and future education...

Nephronophthisis is a progressive disease that affects development of the renal tubules and leads to end stage renal disease. Many affected children have isolated renal disease; however, there can be additional manifestations including heart defects, liver fibrosis, brain malformations, and situs inversus. There is no way to slow or modify the disease. We describe a patient who presented at birth with cholestatic jaundice and decreased kidney function, found by exome sequencing to have two NPHP3 variants. Her clinical status deteriorated rapidly, and two disease-modifying agents were given in hopes of slowing disease progression, the arginine vasopressin type II receptor antagonist tolvaptan to stabilize her renal function and isosorbide dinitrate to manage her poorly controlled hypertension...
