Nephrotic syndrome (NS) is one of the most common manifestation of paediatric
glomerular disease and is know to have various histological subtypes.
Resistance to therapy is associated with an increased risk of
development of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Abstract...
Hydronephrosis describes swelling of the kidneys due to buildup of urine.
Hydroneprosis may be physiological or pathological acute or chronic;
complete or partial; unilateral or bilateral; functional or structural.
Although cyclosporine A (CsA) is now the recommended first-line treatment for
idiopathic steriod-restistant neprotic syndrome (iSRNS), adverse effect on
renal function have been reported.
The acquied reflux nephropathy (RN) is the common complication of vesico-ureteral
reflux (VUR). The aim of this sudy was to determine predictive risk factors for
for RN using clinical, biological and radiological variables present at onset of the disease.
Neonatal acute kidney injury (NAKI) is relatively common, with increasing
incidence globally. Infants with NAKI are at increased risk of long-term chronic kidney
disease, or death.
Nephrotic syndrome (NS) is the commonest mode of presentation of glomerular disease in Africa. There is
no single histological entity that underlies NS in Africa.
The increased morbidity and mortality from acute kidney injury (AKI) following birth asphyxia can be reduces
by early diagnosis with prompt intervention.
Dialysis is the use of a permeable membrane to affect the transfer of solutes and solvents betewwen the patient and the dialysate. It may be haemodialysis (HD) or peritoneal dialysis (PD). By:
