BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Congenital complete atrioventricular heart block (CHB) is due to the lesion of the cardiac conduction system by specific transplacental antibodies of maternal origin. In adults with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), cardiac toxicity is very questionable and has been related to treatment with synthetic antimalarial drugs (AM). Here we evaluate, in our geographic area, the presence of non congenital CHB in adult patients with SLE and its possible association with AM treatment...

We reviewed the literature in 2007 on 3 groups of systemic diseases affecting the kidney: lupic nephropathy (LN), small vessel vasculitis (SVV) and renal amyloidosis. A systematic review of 268 patients with LN pooled from 4 studies found that mycophenolic acid (MPA) in the induction phase caused more remissions and achieved greater renal survival than cyclophosphamide (CP), confirming it as a valid alternative to CP. Using a protocol including rituximab and MPA in the induction phase (14 days), MPA alone without corticoids is effective and safe in the maintenance phase...

The therapeutic goals for a patient with newly diagnosed lupus nephritis should be to achieve a prompt renal remission, to avoid renal flares, to avoid chronic renal impairment, and to fulfil these objectives with minimal toxicity. An advance in the therapy of LN has been the introduction of concepts of induction of remission (by a sort course of vigorous immunosupression such as monthly intravenous cyclophosphamide) and maintenance of remission (by long-term administration of the same cytotoxic drug given less frequently or a potentially safer immunosupressant such as azathioprine)...

The present study describes 21 cases (17 females and 01 male) of 12 year old patients, or younger, with diagnosis of SLE, that were submitted to renal biopsy. The histologic study demonstrated 10 cases of membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (Class IV-WHO); 4 cases of focal proliferative glomerulonephritis (Class III-WHO; 2 cases of mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis (Class II-WHO) and 2 cases of membranous glomerulonephritis (Class V-WHO). Three cases were excluded. In this study the incidence of lupus nephritis in children was small, similar to what has been described by other authors, and presenting unfavorable histologic patterns...

Serum IgE concentration was determined in 17 newborn and 171 children with ages between 1 and 12 months. In the first group, blood was taken from the umbilical cord, and in the second, we used a periferic blood sample. The selection implied the exclusion of children with any suspicion of atopic disease, family history of atopy and recent viral infection. The serum IgE concentration was determined by enzyme linked immunoabsorbent assay (PRIST). The sex, race ( white and non white) and age were analyzed in the children studied...

AIMS: Systemic Lupus Eritematosus is an autoimmune disease, the incidence in pediatric poblation in about 5%, and until 90% develop nephropathy. MATERIAL AND METHOD: Included patients with lupic nephropathy grade IV (OMS) ages between 0 and 16 years old, multitreated, who administrated PTX. We take samples before treatment, during, and 4 month after, evaluating renal function and hepatic function. RESULTS: For female, tow male, promedium age 14...

Systemic lupus erythematosus is a disease considered as seldom in Senegal. Nevertheless its incidence is increasing these last years. The prognosis is significantly related to the renal involvement, classified into 6 classes by the WHO. The treatment of these different forms is variable, consisting on abstention or symptomatic treatment for the class III (with low activity index), class II, I, and V (without renal failure). In the other hand a vigorous treatment is indicated in the class III, with consistent activity index, class IV and class V with renal failure...

Congenital deficit of the inhibitor of C1 esterase (C1 INH) usually presents by oedema of the lower limbs, abdomen and glottis (sometimes lethal), which explains its clinical denomination of angioneurotic oedema. The association of this condition with disseminated lupus erythematosis has been reported in 4 cases and with discoid lupus in 4 cases. Antinuclear factors were found in all these cases but there were only two documented cases of nephropathy (one diffuse proliferative glomerulonephritis and one local glomerulonephritis)...

Deficiency of C1 esterase inhibitor (C1-INH) was demonstrated in 7 of 22 subjects belonging to the same French family. Immune complex glomerulonephritis without lupic symptoms was discovered in one of the C1-INH deficient subjects, and in a girl of the same family the same deficiency was associated with an insulin-dependent diabetes of sudden onset. The pathophysiological consequences of complement deficiency resulting from the lack of C1 esterase inhibitor are discussed.

Most helpful immunological tests for diagnosis of connectivities are revised. Among them, antinuclear antibodies (AAN) are the most important. They are usually detected by immunofluorescence and show different patterns, being the peripheral one the most specific of SLE and it is related with antibodies anti-DNA which can make immunocomplexes DNA-anti-DNA and be the cause of lupic nephropathy. The "nucleolar" and "speckled" patterns are more frequent in scleroderma. The LE cells have less value than AAN. The rheumatoid factor is a IgM antibody anti-IgG, but also can be of IgG or IgA class...

Seventy cases of cholera were admitted to Hospital during 1973 cholera epidemic; 49 showed the symptoms of renal failure, 19 of whom with anuria. Acute renal failure is caused from hypertonic or isotonic dehydration, metabolic acidosis and potassium depletion. Clinically the pattern of a tubulo-interstitial nephritis can be found; a short oliguric or anuric phase followed by a poliuric phase lasting about 10 days. The glomerular function usually cames back to normal in 20 days time. As for the therapy, 16 of the above mentioned 19 anuric patients received a conservative treatment only; 3 patients with preexisting chronic nephropathy required peritoneal dialysis...

Therapeutic indications are not the same in the various types of lupus GN. Most cases of extra-membranous GN and focal GN require no specific treatment. In diffuse proliferative GN, the therapeutic indications depend upon the type of lesions and should always be judged in the light of renal biopsy findings. The use of cortisosteroids in high dosage, which is often followed by regression or even complete disappearence of active renal lesions, has considerably altered the prognosis in lupus nephropathy. Chronic haemodialysis and renal transplantation also make it possible to keep alive patients who have reached the stage of end stage renal failure...
