BACKGROUND: Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is characterized by abnormalities in cerebral white matter and neurologic symptoms. It can be caused by immunosuppressive drugs or autoimmune diseases. We describe a case of PRES in a patient with collapsing focal glomeruloesclerosis (collapsing FGS) with complete recovery after withdrawal of cyclosporine (CSA). CASE REPORT: A 27-year-old male presented a corticosteroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome secondary to collapsing FGS corticosteroid...

UNLABELLED: The Uruguayan Registry of Glomerulopathies began its activity in 1974 and since 1985 is a national registry. The aim of this report is to analyze the incidence and the variations in frequencies of the histological diagnosis and clinical presentation during the 1980-2003 period. PATIENTS AND METHODS: From the 2,058 patients with renal biopsy in the whole period, we analyzed the histological diagnosis and the following data has been collected when the patients were registered: age, gender, clinical syndrome, proteinuria, hematuria, serum creatinine, blood pressure and time from the first symptom...

In 179 patients subjected to 186 renal transplants, 30 renal biopsies were performed due to the presence of a proteinuria over 3.5 g/24 h or due to a reduction in glomerular filtration rate. Six of these biopsies, coming from 5 patients, disclosed morphological alterations compatible with focal segmental glomeruloesclerosis. Five of these were due to recurrence of the primary disease (in four patients) and in all, massive proteinuria appeared from 1 to 23 days after transplantation. Two patients with three transplants, evolved to renal failure and required dialysis in a period 12 months as a mean...

This report describes the first pediatric case of chronic renal failure as a complication of infectious mononucleosis in a 3 1/2 year old girl. The clinical features were marked at onset by proteinuria and later by nephrotic syndrome. The evolution to chronic renal failure took about two years. In the renal biopsy, lesions characteristic of interstitial nephritis were observed, associated with focal and segmental glomeruloesclerosis and deposits of C3 in granular and discontinued form. Renal participation in infectious mononucleosis is not unusual and fundamentally it is manifested by proteinuria and abnormalities of urinary sediment, with interstitial nephritis as a characteristic lesion in the renal biopsy...
