Pregnancy is increasingly undertaken in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and, conversely, CKD is increasingly diagnosed in pregnancy: up to 3 % of pregnancies are estimated to be complicated by CKD. The heterogeneity of CKD (accounting for stage, hypertension and proteinuria) and the rarity of several kidney diseases make risk assessment difficult and therapeutic strategies are often based upon scattered experiences and small series. In this setting, the aim of this position statement of the Kidney and Pregnancy Study Group of the Italian Society of Nephrology is to review the literature, and discuss the experience in the clinical management of CKD in pregnancy...

It is considered that the assessment of a SK should be performed with four and not three parameters as it was usually done until recently: renal function, proteinuria and blood pressure (BP), to which biomarkers should be added. The solitary kidney can result after nephrectomy for kidney transplantation...

Renal involvement and renal function disorders are commonplace in patients with rheumatic diseases and are often decisive for the prognosis. Typical nephrological complications in rheumatology are renal manifestations or delayed sequelae of the underlying disease in addition to drug-induced renal failure, e.g. by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). The differentiation from other common causes of disturbed renal function (e.g. diabetes and hypertension) is important and often difficult in individual cases...
