BACKGROUND Type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM) tends to complicate other autoimmune diseases. When considering renal dysfunction in patients with DM, diabetic nephropathy is a likely diagnosis. By contrast, anti-glomerular basement membrane (GBM) glomerulonephritis, an autoimmune disease, is one cause of rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis. CASE REPORT We report the case of a 44-year-old woman diagnosed with anti-glomerular basement membrane (GBM) glomerulonephritis. The diagnosis was made on the basis of serological test results and pathological findings of a renal biopsy...

Taste(gustation)is one of the five senses, and comprises the types: sweet, bitter, salty, sour, and umami. Taste disorders, such as dysgeusia and parageusia, are classified into 2 types: those with peripheral origin and those with central origin. The peripheral origin-type taste disorder is caused by zinc deficiency, mouth dryness, a side effect of radiotherapy or complication of systemic diseases such as, diabetes, hepatopathy, and nephropathy. The central origin-type taste disorder is reported to be caused due to demyelinating disease, pontine hemorrhage, pontine infarction, and thalamic infarction; it is very rarely caused by a brain tumor...

Type 2 diabetes is the main health problem in Mexico. The large and growing number of cases and the remarkable economic impact of the disease support this statement. The condition is expressed at an earlier age and at a lower body mass index in Mexican mestizos compared with the age and body mass index reported in Caucasians. In addition, Mexican mestizos have an increased susceptibility to developing diabetic nephropathy. The Mexican health system needs major adjustments in order to prevent and treat type 2 diabetes...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is much more common than people recognize, and habitually goes undetected and undiagnosed until the disease is well advanced or when their kidney functions is down to 25% of normal function. Genetic and non-genetic factors contribute to cause CKD. Non-genetic factors include hypertension, High level of DNA damage due to the production of reactive oxygen species and nucleic acid oxidation has been reported in CKD patients. Main genetic factor which causes CKD is diabetic nephropathy...

In rare instances, recipients of organ transplants from human T-lymphotropic virus type I- (HTLV-I-) positive donors reportedly developed neurologic symptoms due to HTLV-I-associated myelopathy (HAM). We present herein two cases of HAM associated with renal transplantation from HTLV-I seropositive living-donors. The first patient was a 42-year-old woman with chronic renal failure for twelve years and seronegative for HTLV-I. She underwent renal transplantation with her HTLV-I seropositive mother as the donor, and she developed HAM three years after the transplantation...

Kimmelstiel and Wilson originally described nodular glomerulosclerosis as the pathognomonic lesion of diabetic nephropathy. Nevertheless, nodular glomerulosclerosis pattern can rarely occur in non-diabetic patients. In such cases, the differential diagnosis includes membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis, light or heavy chain deposition disease, amyloidosis, fibrillary and immunotactoid glomerulonephritis and chronic hypoxic or ischemic conditions. In cases that the above entities cannot be proven, the term idiopathic nodular glomerulosclerosis is given...

Whether the DD genotype of the angiotensin-I converting enzyme (ACE) I/D variation contributes to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) risk in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) remains controversial. Differences in study design, case and control definition, sample size and ethnicity may contribute to the discrepancies reported in association studies. We performed a case-control study to evaluate the association of the ACE I/D variation with ESRD risk in Chinese patients with T2DM receiving hemodialysis and analyzed the genotype-phenotype interaction...

BACKGROUND: Nodular glomerulosclerosis is seen in insulin dependent diabetic patients with nephropathy. Kimmelstiel-Wilson nodules on biopsy are considered pathognomonic. Diabetic nephropathy is a spectrum of glomerular and tubular disease which correlates with the duration of the diabetes and the extent of glycaemic control. CASE REPORT: An eleven year old girl with cystic fibrosis was referred with persistent heavy proteinuria. She underwent a renal biopsy which revealed nodular glomerulosclerosis with Kimmelstiel-Wilson-like nodules...

The cause of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemic in South Africa (SA) was worsened by the denial by key political players that HIV causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). South Africa continues to have the highest rate of HIV world-wide, which has had a huge impact on the development of both chronic kidney disease and acute kidney injury. Fortunately, there is now an effective antiretroviral therapy (ART) roll-out program. SA is also dealing with a collision of epidemics of HIV, tuberculosis, and non-communicable disease, particularly hypertension and diabetes...
