INTRODUCTION: End-stage renal disease (ESRD) is a major public health concern in Morocco with an incidence in constant progression according to MAGREDIAL "Morocco Dialysis Registry". Patients are often sent late to nephrologists, which is a source of complications recognized in several countries. For these reasons, we tried to evaluate, in our context, the prevalence and factors of this late referral (LR). METHODS: This is a retrospective study which included all patients initiating hemodialysis between January 2007 and December 2015...

BACKGROUND: Sensenbrenner syndrome (cranioectodermal dysplasia, CED) is a very rare autosomal recessive ciliopathy first described by Judith Sensenbrenner in 1975. CED is a complex disorder characterized by craniofacial, skeletal, and ectodermal abnormalities. The clinical symptoms are variable and the CED phenotype may present intrafamilial and interfamilial differences. Sensenbrenner syndrome belongs to a group of ciliary chondrodysplasias and is a genetically heterogeneous disease...

Renal biopsy is an important diagnostic procedure in pediatric nephrology. This study retrospectively investigates the indications, results and complications in a single tertiary children's hospital in Turkey. We evaluated the native and transplant kidney biopsies in Gazi University Pediatric Nephrology Department between 2001 and 2015. A total of 196 biopsies (144 natives and 52 transplants) were included into the study. The mean age of the patients was respectively 10.8 ± 3.5, 13.9 ± 1.5 years...

In nephrology, some diseases begin specifically during childhood; however, they must be known by adult nephrologists so that to ensure continuity and homogeneity for their management. The aim of this review is therefore to propose a brief overview of the main pediatric diseases, for which a specific knowledge is warranted, and notably pediatric idiopathic nephrotic syndrome, cystinosis, primary hyperoxaluria and hereditaries tubulopathies.

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a global problem which predicts immediate and long-term adverse outcomes. We evaluated the AKI progression to end-stage renal disease, as well as the mortality associated with AKI and the in-hospital readmission rate because of a cardiovascular event in AKI patients admitted in a nephrology ward. A 5-year retrospective study was set in a nephrology department, with a follow-up period of up to 8 years. In a total of 191 patients, mean age was 73.83 ± 12.49 years, and 137 (71...

Children with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) generally undergo a pretreatment kidney biopsy. However, some of these patients, especially those with antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), may experience serious coagulopathic complications. We report herein two cases of paediatric SLE with APS in which, despite normal blood test results, the disparate coagulopathic complications of haemorrhage and embolism developed following a kidney biopsy. Case 1 was, an 8-year-old male in whom, primary APS was initially diagnosed...

BACKGROUND: Uteroglobin (UG) is a multifunctional protein with anti-inflammatory properties. The aim of this study was to first evaluate the role of UG gene G38A polymorphism in childhood idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (INS), and determine whether this variation may be related to the occurrence of INS or a steroid response. METHODS: One hundred and thirty-six children diagnosed with INS in Gaziantep University, Department of Pediatric Nephrology, and 70 healthy volunteers were included...

This review reports main progresses in various pediatric issues published in Italian Journal of Pediatrics and in international journals in 2016. New insights in clinical features or complications of several disorders may be useful for our better understanding. They comprise severe asthma, changing features of lupus erythematosus from birth to adolescence, celiac disease, functional gastrointestinal disorders, Moebius syndrome, recurrent pneumonia. Risk factors for congenital heart defects, Kawasaki disease have been widely investigated...

The risk assessment for developing end-stage renal disease (ESRD) remains unclear in patients with lupus nephritis (LN). The purpose of this study was to develop and validate a prediction rule for estimating the individual risk of ESRD in patients with LN using clinical and pathological data.A total of 599 patients with LN diagnosed by renal biopsy between June 2009 and June 2014 in West China Hospital of Sichuan University were retrospectively followed. Patients were randomly divided into derivation cohort (n = 379) and validation cohort (n = 220)...

BACKGROUND: Recent years have seen increasing use of rituximab (RTX) for various types of primary and secondary glomerulopathies. However, there are no studies that specifically address the risk of infection related to this agent in patients with these conditions. METHODS: We reviewed the outcomes of all patients who received RTX therapy for glomerular disease between June 2000 and October 2011 in eight French nephrology departments. Each case was analysed for survival, cause of death if a non-survivor and/or the presence of infectious complications, including severe or opportunistic infection occurring within the 12 months following RTX infusion...

Renal dysfunction occurs in 25% to 50% of patients with cirrhosis admitted to the hospital with an acute episode of hepatic decompensation and may be due to underlying chronic kidney disease, an acute deterioration, or both. An acute deterioration in renal function in cirrhotic patients is now collectively referred to as acute kidney injury (AKI), which has been subclassified into different grades of severity that identify prognostic groups. Acute-on-chronic liver failure is characterized by acute hepatic and/or extrahepatic organ failure driven by a dysregulated immune response and systemic inflammatory response...

BACKGROUND: Nephrotic syndrome represents a condition in pediatric nephrology typified by a relapsing and remitting course, proteinuria and the presence of edema. The PROMIS measures have previously been studied and validated in cross-sectional studies of children with nephrotic syndrome. This study was designed to longitudinally validate the PROMIS measures in pediatric nephrotic syndrome. METHODS: One hundred twenty seven children with nephrotic syndrome between the ages of 8 and 17 years participated in this prospective cohort study...

Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) is an acquired chronic disorder characterized by a triad of clinical features - hemolytic anemia, pancytopenia, and thrombosis. Not many reports of renal involvement in PNH are available in literature. We present a case series of PNH with renal involvement. We present the data of PNH patients who attended to Departments of General Medicine and Nephrology at a government-run tertiary care institute in South India. The diagnosis of PNH in these patients during initial phase, between 1998 and 2004 was based on sucrose lysis and Ham's test...

The AKI in intensive care has been widely treated by international and national guidelines. The treatment of AKI in patients not requiring admission in Intensive Care Unit, but often hospitalized in Nephrology Unit, it is showed of less relevance. For over 5 years we have used for the treatment of AKI of patients admitted in Nephrology Unit an intermittent slow technique, implemented in approximately 600 patients with AKI for a total of about 3000 treatments. In this study we report the clinical results obtained in 100 consecutive patients referred to our Nephrology Unit from 1st January 2014...

BACKGROUND: Interventional catheterization procedures may be needed for patients with severe renal failure who are dependent on dialysis. To avoid the risk of fluid overload and electrolyte derangement during complex procedures in this oliguric/anuric patient population, we performed intra-procedural dialysis, either continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) or continous cycling peritoneal dialysis (CCPD). METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of a cohort of pediatric patients, ages 0-18 years, with dialysis-dependent renal failure who received CRRT or CCPD during catheterization procedures from January 2013 to March 2016...
