"Congenital heart disease" glomerulonephritis

Christopher P Ouellette, Sarita Joshi, Karen Texter, Preeti Jaggi
Two children with congenital heart disease status-post surgical correction presented with prolonged constitutional symptoms, hepatosplenomegaly and pancytopenia. Concern for malignancy prompted bone marrow biopsies that were without evidence thereof. In case #1, echocardiography identified a multilobulated vegetation on the conduit valve. In case #2, transthoracic, transesophageal and intracardiac echocardiography were performed and were without evidence of cardiac vegetations, however pulmonic emboli raised concern for infective endocarditis...

The presence of lupus anticoagulants (LAs) is an important cause of activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) prolongation found in children after an infection or during screening tests before surgical intervention. The authors retrospectively reviewed the charts of 68 patients who have been consulted from surgery departments with prolonged aPTT. These patients were reevaluated with aPTT analysis after 1 week. Thirteen patients had normal aPTTs. Therefore, 55 patients remained with prolonged aPTTs. LA positivity was detected in 39 patients...

We report a case of a 21-year-old young man with underlying congenital heart disease who developed Bartonella henselae endocarditis of the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) conduit of his Melody transcatheter (percutaneous) pulmonary valve (TPV), with an initial presentation of glomerulonephritis with a dominant C3 pattern, with renal failure and circulating cryoglobulins. There are few reports of a glomerulonephritis with a dominant C3 pattern presenting as a manifestation of B. henselae endocarditis...

Kidney disease is a rare complication in patients with the Down's syndrome. However, with increased survival, it appears that a growing number of these patients present with glomerulonephritis. Most cases have been reported as case reports and include lesions such as mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis with hypo-complementemia, crescentic glomerulonephritis with anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA), amyloidosis and immunotactoid glomerulopathy. We report the observation of a 38-year-old man with the Down's syndrome who presented with severe renal failure, proteinuria and microscopic hematuria evolving over two months...

OBJECTIVE: There are no guidelines to establish the indications and contraindications for a simultaneous heart and kidney transplantation. We report our single-institutional experience with simultaneous heart and kidney transplantation. METHODS: Retrospective chart review. RESULTS: Between 1995 and 2006, 13 patients with co-existing end-stage heart and renal failure underwent simultaneous heart and kidney transplantation at the authors' hospital...

OBJECTIVE: Eighteen to twenty-four percent of patients with infective endocarditis (IE) proved pathologically were clinically possible IE by the Duke criteria. In order to improve the sensitivity, the new criteria (trial) for the diagnosis of IE was proposed by Pediatric Cardiology Association of China and Editorial Committee of Chinese Journal of Pediatrics. The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the value of the new criteria (trial) for the diagnosis of IE with the Duke criteria...

PURPOSE: To find and solve the common problems of peritoneal dialysis (PD) by analyzing the clinical data of pediatric PD performed in Korea. METHODS: We looked at 264 cases of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) and acute PD that were performed in 18 institutions of pediatric nephrology in Korea from November 1987 to October 1997. RESULTS: CAPD was performed in 114 cases. The mean age of the patients was 10.5+/-6.6 years, and the male-to-female ratio was 1...

Six cases of combined heart and kidney transplantation with organs from the same donor are reported. All six patients suffered from primary end-stage kidney disease, two chronic glomerulonephritis, two glomerulosclerosis, one chronic pyelonephritis and one with unknown etiology. Four patients were undergoing hemodialysis. Three patients had the diagnosis of ischemic heart disease, one dilated cardiomyopathy secondary to congenital heart disease, two idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. Five were males and one female...

We studied kidney biopsy specimens from three children with sickle cell anemia and microangiopathic glomerulopathy. One child also had cyanotic congenital heart disease. Laboratory evaluation revealed proteinuria and normal serum creatinine in all and normal serum complement in two of the three children at the time of biopsy. In all biopsies, glomeruli were enlarged with diffuse hypercellularity and focal segmental mesangial interposition; capillary loop lumens were congested with sickled erythrocytes. Immune labeling identified segmental immunoglobulin G, C3, and properdin over the glomerular capillary loop walls in each case...

Survival of patients with increasingly complex congenital heart disease has produced a population of children and adolescents who are susceptible to subacute bacterial endocarditis (SBE). We report a child whose endocarditis went unrecognised, and who developed amyloidosis. Asymptomatic proteinuria, haematuria and renal impairment are occasionally seen in SBE and usually indicate glomerulonephritis. Amyloidosis should also be suspected in children with long-standing bacterial endocarditis with proteinuria or other evidence of renal impairment, especially if associated with organomegaly...

The clinical and pathologic features of progressive renal disease in 4 patients with Down's syndrome are described. All patients were male, between 20 and 30 years of age at the time of clinical presentation. Three out of 4 had proteinuria, and 2 had hematuria. Serologic tests for hepatitis B virus infection and antinuclear antibodies performed in 2 patients were negative. Examination of renal tissue from biopsy and/or from autopsy revealed mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis (MCGN), type 1. While an increased incidence of congenital heart disease and acute leukemias has been documented in Down's syndrome, an association with MCGN has not been reported previously to our knowledge...

Twenty-six cases of infective endocarditis seen at autopsy during the first decade of life, between 1911 and 1944, are compared with seven fatal cases between 1944 and 1977. The incidence of infective endocarditis at autopsy in this age-group has decreased since 1944 (0.60% to 0.23%). Before 1944, Gram-positive cocci were most frequently responsible. Rheumatic heart disease (31%) more often predisposed to infective endocarditis than did congenital heart disease and left-sided valves were most frequently involved...

Three children with congenital heart disease presented with more or less severe renal dysfunction. Histologic studies showed signs of membranoproliferative pseudoglomerulonephritis without deposits on immunofluorescence. Surgical correction of the heart defect induced a spectacular functional and histologic improvement.
