Summary of "Genetics of congenital and infantile nephrotic syndrome."

Congenital and infantile nephrotic syndrome (CNS and INS) are rare inherited defects in glomerular filtration involving a variety of gene mutations. This study aimed to analyze all genetic mutations associated with congenital and infantile nephrotic syndrome treated at our institution. We also discussed our different approach secondary to culture and resources.

Gene mutation analysis in 12 Chinese children with congenital nephrotic syndrome.

Congenital nephrotic syndrome (CNS) is characterised by increased proteinuria, hypoproteinemia, and edema beginning in the first 3 months of life. Recently, molecular genetic studies have identified...

B cell phenotype in pediatric idiopathic nephrotic syndrome.

A pathogenic role of B cells in non-genetic nephrotic syndrome has been suggested by the efficacy of rituximab, a B cell depleting antibody, in maintaining a prolonged remission. However, little infor...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition characterized by severe PROTEINURIA, greater than 3.5 g/day in an average adult. The substantial loss of protein in the urine results in complications such as HYPOPROTEINEMIA; generalized EDEMA; HYPERTENSION; and HYPERLIPIDEMIAS. Diseases associated with nephrotic syndrome generally cause chronic kidney dysfunction.

A syndrome characterized by multiple abnormalities, MENTAL RETARDATION, and movement disorders. Present usually are skull and other abnormalities, frequent infantile spasms (SPASMS, INFANTILE); easily provoked and prolonged paroxysms of laughter (hence "happy"); jerky puppetlike movements (hence "puppet"); continuous tongue protrusion; motor retardation; ATAXIA; MUSCLE HYPOTONIA; and a peculiar facies. It is associated with maternal deletions of chromosome 15q11-13 and other genetic abnormalities. (From Am J Med Genet 1998 Dec 4;80(4):385-90; Hum Mol Genet 1999 Jan;8(1):129-35)

Renal syndrome in human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients characterized by nephrotic syndrome, severe proteinuria, focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis with distinctive tubular and interstitial changes, enlarged kidneys, and peculiar tubuloreticular structures. The syndrome is distinct from heroin-associated nephropathy as well as other forms of kidney disease seen in HIV-infected patients.

An infantile syndrome characterized by a cat-like cry, failure to thrive, microcephaly, MENTAL RETARDATION, spastic quadriparesis, micro- and retrognathia, glossoptosis, bilateral epicanthus, hypertelorism, and tiny external genitalia. It is caused by a deletion of the short arm of chromosome 5 (5p-).

A syndrome of DYSPHAGIA with IRON-DEFICIENCY ANEMIA that is due to congenital anomalies in the ESOPHAGUS (such as cervical esophageal webs). It is known as Patterson-Kelly syndrome in the United Kingdom.
