Renal involvement in psoriasis is usually seen as mesangioproliferative glomerulonephritis (GN), IgA nephropathy, and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. Microscopic hematuria is not uncommon in a patient of psoriasis with above-mentioned disorders. We found C3 GN as a cause when evaluated for macroscopic and persistent microscopic hematuria in a patient of psoriasis.

Kimura's disease (KD) usually presents with a subcutaneous swelling and associated lymphadenopathy in the periauricular area. KD has a tendency to involve the kidneys. Proteinuria is reported in 12%-16% of cases, and around 60%-70% of them develop nephrotic range proteinuria. We are reporting a case of KD which developed around 12 years later in a patient of biopsy-proven steroid responsive minimal change disease. Recurrent swellings of KD and subnephrotic range proteinuria responded to low-dose tacrolimus therapy (0...

Peritonitis is a common clinical problem in patients treated by continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). The most common microbiological factors causing peritonitis are Gram-positive (especially Staphylococcus spp.). Peritonitis with Rhizobium radiobacter (Agrobacterium radiobacter) is a rare infection in CAPD patients. Peritonitis due to R. radiobacter has been reported in our patient's dialysate culture who underwent CAPD for three years. We report the case of a 26-year-old female PD patient who had CAPD peritonitis due to R...

Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is associated with numerous extra-hepatic complications, including neurological and renal manifestations. We describe the case of a 67-year-old Caucasian man with HCV-associated cryoglobulinemic glomerulonephritis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. The early posttransplant course was complicated by fibrosing cholestatic hepatitis due to recurrent HCV in the graft (HCV RNA up to 44,944,438 IU/mL). Proliferative glomerulonephritis (nephritic and nephrotic syndrome) with mixed cryoglobulinemia (purpura) was also recorded...

Immunoglobulin M nephropathy (IgMN) is a primary glomerulonephritis which is characterized by variable degrees of morphological features ranging from minimal glomerular involvement to segmental or global sclerosis. No specific treatment is known to date for this disease because of uncertainties in etiopathogenesis. The mainstay treatment for this disease has been corticosteroids, which has varying degrees of resistance ranging from 0% to 50%. We present the case of a 59-year-old Caucasian male who was referred to the outpatient nephrology clinic for the evaluation of proteinuria and was diagnosed with IgMN...

Snake bite envenomation is common in tropical countries during the summer. Snake bite-induced acute kidney injury (AKI) has varied histopathological manifestations such as acute cortical necrosis, acute tubular necrosis (ATN), and acute interstitial nephritis. However, snake bite-induced renal medullary angiitis has rarely been reported. We describe a nine-year-old child with AKI following viperine snake bite and renal biopsy revealed pigment cast nephropathy, ATN and medullary angiitis.

Hydralazine is a commonly used anti-hypertensive medication. It can, however, contribute to the development of autoimmunity, in the form of drug-induced lupus and anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies-associated vasculitis. We report a 45-year-old patient with hypertension managed with hydralazine for four years who presented with rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (RPGN), requiring hemodialysis, and diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH), requiring mechanical ventilation, and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation...

The most common form of chronic glomerulonephritis worldwide is IgA nephropathy (IgAN) where IgA immune complexes are deposited in the glomeruli. About 40%-45% of patients with IgAN present with macroscopic hematuria. Diagnosis occurs through kidney biopsy to visualize IgA deposition in the glomerular mesangial area using immunofluorescence microscopy. We presented a 21-year-old patient referred to the nephrology department for follow-up after renal transplantation. His condition started at the age of nine-year with macroscopic hematuria...

Calciphylaxis, also known as calcific uremic arteriolopathy, is a rare, life-threatening complication of end-stage renal disease. However, it may also occur in patients without renal failure, the nonuremic calciphylaxis. Most patients present with painful skin ulcers. Delayed diagnosis can lead to sepsis-related morbidity and mortality. Aberrations in calcium, phosphate, and parathyroid hormone physiology are common and biopsy is diagnostic. Early diagnosis and correction of vascular and metabolic aberrations may assist in healing as may the use of sodium thiosulfate and hyperbaric oxygen therapy...

The burden of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is increasing worldwide. Renal replacement therapy is the lifesaving treatment modality in end-stage renal disease. Among various renal replacement modalities, hemodialysis (HD) is widely preferred one. Intradialytic complications are common and mostly inevitable. This study was conducted to determine pattern of intradialytic complications and its associated factors. This is a cross-sectional study conducted for six months duration among all CKD patients who were undergoing maintenance HD in B...

In the absence of a national registry, the exact incidence and burden of chronic kidney disease in children in India is not known. The most common diagnosis for which children are likely to see a pediatric nephrologist is nephrotic syndrome constituting almost 40% of cases. Considering all the renal manifestations in the pediatric age group, we designed simply survey to find out the awareness among school going children about the kidney's function and dysfunction in our Indian scenario. More than 95% of children knew that normally humans have two kidneys...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) in pregnancy is associated with significant maternal morbidity and mortality. Several studies from worldwide have shown different frequencies of the causes of pregnancy-related AKI (PRAKI). The present study aimed to provide local data on frequency of causes of PRAKI. A total of 111 pregnant women using nonprobability consecutive sampling technique, with the age group of 18-45 years, admitted with the diagnosis of PRAKI were included in the study. The information regarding age, duration of pregnancies, serum creatinine levels, and outcome variables (complications) were collected from each patient...

The prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) has increased substantially in India over the past two decades commensurate with the global trend and has currently emerged as a significant cause of mortality and morbidity. Use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), especially ayurvedic medication, is widespread in CKD although accurate data on the prevalence of use are lacking. A cross-sectional study was conducted from January to June 2017 in the nephrology outpatient clinic of a medical college hospital in Mangalore, South-West India...

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is the most common hereditary renal disease, which usually manifests in adulthood. It is characterized by the development of multiple cysts in the kidneys and many other extrarenal manifestations. We aimed to determine the factors that contribute to the progression of ADPKD to end-stage renal disease (ESRD). In a retrospective multicentric study, we reviewed the records of 569 patients with ADPKD, hospitalized at a nephrology department or followed up at the outpatient department of university and regional hospitals, covering the north and center of the country, during the period 1969-2016...
