Diagnosis and primary care management of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis in children.

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a pattern of kidney damage that can occur in individuals at any age, including children. Pediatric patients with FSGS require medication monitoring, growth, and psychological health. This article discusses the NP's role in the clinical presentation, diagnostic workup, and treatment of FSGS in pediatric patients.

Protecting Podocytes: A Key Target for Therapy of Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis.

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a histologic pattern of injury demonstrated by renal biopsy that can arise from a diverse range of causes and mechanisms. It has an estimated incidence of 7 per 1 million and is the most common primary glomerular disorder leading to end-stage renal disease in the United States. This review focuses on damage to the podocyte and the consequences of this injury in patients with FSGS, the genetics of FSGS, and approaches to treatment with a focus on the effects on po...

Management of steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome in children and adolescents.

More than 85% of children and adolescents (majority between 1-12 years old) with idiopathic nephrotic syndrome show complete remission of proteinuria following daily treatment with corticosteroids. Patients who do not show remission after 4 weeks' treatment with daily prednisolone are considered to have steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRNS). Renal histology in most patients shows presence of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, minimal change disease, and (rarely) mesangioproliferative glomerulonephrit...

Diagnosis and primary care management of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis in children.

Generation of two isogenic iPS cell lines (IRFMNi002-A and IRFMNi002-B) from a patient affected by Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis carrying a heterozygous c.565G>A mutation in PAX2 gene.

Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is the typical renal histologic lesion in familial steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome, for which there is currently no treatment. Dysfunction of the glomerular podocyte, a specialized cell that forms the glomerular filtration barrier, is central in the pathogenesis of FSGS. Here, we reported the generation of two isogenic iPS cell lines from a patient affected by FSGS, carrying the c.565G > A mutation in the PAX2 gene. The iPS cell lines we generated expressed...

Treatment with Lecinoxoids Attenuates Focal and Segmental Glomerulosclerosis Development in Nephrectomized Rats.

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a scarring process associated with chronic low-grade inflammation ascribed to toll-like receptor (TLR) activation and monocyte migration. We developed synthetic, small-molecule lecinoxoids, VB-201 and VB-703, that differentially inhibit TLR-2- and TLR-4-mediated activation and monocyte migration. The efficacy of anti-inflammatory lecinoxoid treatment on FSGS development was explored using a 5/6 nephrectomy rat model. Five-sixths nephrectomized rats were treated w...

Apheresis for Kidney Disease.

Plasma exchange or double filtration plasmapheresis for rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis, and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) apheresis or leukocytapheresis for nephritic syndrome are two major apheresis therapies for kidney diseases. In addition to these apheresis therapies, plasma exchange for lupus nephritis or LDL apheresis for refractory focal segmental glomerulonephritis is clinically valuable and established. Although several possibilities of apheresis for kidney diseases were speculated in anima...

Delayed Death Due to Saddle Pulmonary Thromboembolus in Child With Nephrotic Syndrome Induced by Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis.

While the characteristic features of nephrotic syndrome (ie, proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia, peripheral edema, and hyperlipidemia) are well known, the association of nephrotic syndrome and the risk of thromboembolic events is not as often appreciated and may be overlooked. This report describes a 10-year-old boy with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis who died following a saddle pulmonary thromboembolus, with near-complete occlusion of the left and right pulmonary arteries. The gross appearance of the thrombu...

Our Approaches to Selective Plasma Exchange.

Plasma exchange (PE) therapy is the most commonly used treatment in Japan today. The issue with PE is that it removes coagulation factors and other essential molecules during the treatment process. Fresh frozen plasma (FFP) is used to replace the essential molecules which are lost. However, FFP can be a source of various complications. We have been researching an alternative method, selective PE, consisting of a membrane with smaller pores, which prevents large and essential molecules from being removed whi...

Use of synthetic adrenocorticotropic hormone in patients with IgA nephropathy.

Synthetic adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) has been demonstrated to be effective in patients with membranous nephropathy, minimal change disease and some histological subtypes of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. Its clinical impact in patients with IgA nephropathy is currently unclear.

To report the use of therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) in a dog with carprofen toxicosis.

Weathering the storm: A case of thyroid storm refractory to conventional treatment benefiting from therapeutic plasma exchange.

Thyroid storm is a severe manifestation of thyrotoxicosis characterized by systemic organ dysfunction secondary to a hypermetabolic state. Although antithyroid drugs, steroids, beta-blockers, antipyretics, and cholestyramine are the standard of care, some patients inadequately respond to these conventional therapies. Therapeutic plasma exchange has been previously utilized as a treatment modality in patients with a poor response to routine therapies or with contraindications to them. Herein, we report our e...

The clinical pattern of nephrotic syndrome in children has no effect on the concentration of soluble urokinase receptor (suPAR) in serum and urine.

Concentration of soluble urokinase receptor (suPAR) was regarded as viable marker to differentiate the focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) from other glomerulopathies and also as predictive parameter for progression of renal disease.

Deletion of the mitochondrial complex-IV co-factor heme A:farnesyltransferase causes focal segmental glomerulosclerosis and interferon response.

Mutations in mitochondrial DNA as well as nuclear-encoded mitochondrial proteins have been reported to cause tubulointerstitial kidney diseases and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). Recently, genes and pathways affecting mitochondrial turnover and permeability have been implicated in adult-onset FSGS. Furthermore, dysfunctioning mitochondria may be capable of engaging intracellular innate immune sensing pathways. To determine the impact of mitochondrial dysfunction in FSGS and secondary innate immu...

Safety of Therapeutic Plasma Exchange for the Treatment of Guillain-Barré Syndrome in Polycythemia Vera.

Polycythemia vera (PV) is a risk factor for systemic thromboses and ischemic stroke. This has been attributed to blood hyperviscosity, the result of increased blood cell production. Intravenous immunoglobulin, which is indicated for the treatment of numerous hematologic and neurological conditions also causes increased serum viscosity and has been associated with ischemic strokes in the setting of PV. Here we report a case of a 70-year-old man with prior stroke and PV who developed Guillain-Barré syndrome,...

The role of B7-1 in proteinuria of glomerular origin.

The damage and loss of podocytes is a primary hallmark of nephrotic syndrome. In the pursuit of targetable molecules that are involved in podocyte pathophysiology, some studies have identified B7-1 (also known as CD80) as a potential biomarker. Furthermore, B7-1 blockade has been proposed as a podocyte-specific treatment for patients with nephrotic syndrome who have limited therapeutic options, such as those with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, minimal change disease, diabetic nephropathy and lupus neph...

Hemizygous Fabry disease associated with membranous nephropathy: A rare case report

Fabry disease may coexist with various glomerular diseases, including IgA nephropathy, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, etc. In this study, we report a rare case of Fabry disease associated with membranous nephropathy (MN).

Hepatocellular damage, proteinuria and autoimmunity: multisystemic disorder or coexistence of diseases?

We report a 19 years old male presenting with knee pain, elevated liver enzymes and proteinuria. Further investigation found positive antinuclear and anti-smooth muscle antibodies and a liver biopsy revealed the presence of an autoimmune hepatitis. Treatment with corticosteroids and azathioprine was started, resulting in normalization of liver enzymes but proteinuria persisted and a kidney biopsy disclosed a focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. The use of lisinopril resulted in a significative reduction of p...

Atomic Force Microscopy Nanomechanical Mapping Visualizes Interfacial Broadening between Networks Due to Chemical Exchange Reactions.

The interfacial broadening between two different epoxy networks having different moduli was nanomechanically mapped. The interfacial broadening of the two networks produced an interfacial zone having a gradient in the concentration and, hence, properties, of the original two networks. This interfacial broadening of the networks leads to the generation of a new network with a segmental composition corresponding to a mixture of the original two networks segments. The intermixing of the two, by nature of the e...

An update on LDL apheresis for nephrotic syndrome.

Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) apheresis has been used increasingly in clinical practice for the treatment of renal diseases with nephrotic syndrome (NS), specifically focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). Persistent hyperlipidemia for prolonged periods is nephrotoxic and leads to chronic progressive glomerular and tubulointerstitial injury. Effective management of hyperlipidemia with HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors or LDL apheresis in drug-resistant NS patients may prevent the progression of renal disease...

Association of HIV Suppression with Kidney Disease Progression among HIV-Positive African Americans with Biopsy-Proven Classic FSGS.

In the era of combined antiretroviral therapy (cART), classic focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is the most common histopathological finding in African American HIV-positive patients with kidney disease. We sought to determine whether HIV suppression is associated with lower risk of progression to end-stage-renal disease (ESRD) among HIV-positive African Americans with biopsy-confirmed classic FSGS.

Three Novel Heterozygous COL4A4 Mutations Result in Three Different Collagen Type IV Kidney Disease Phenotypes.

Thin basement membrane nephropathy (TBMN), autosomal dominant Alport syndrome (ADAS), and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) are kidney diseases that differ in clinical diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis. Nevertheless, they may result from the same causative genes. Here, we report 3 COL4A4 heterozygous mutations (p.Gly208Arg, p.Ser513Glufs*2, and p.Met1617Cysfs*39) that lead to 3 different collagen type IV kidney disease phenotypes, manifesting as TBMN, ADAS, and FSGS. Using bioinformatics analyses ...

Successful treatment of plasma exchange for rapidly progressive interstitial lung disease with anti-MDA5 antibody-positive dermatomyositis: A case report.

As the initial treatment of rapidly progressive interstitial lung disease (RPILD) with antimelanoma differentiation-associated gene 5 antibody (anti-MDA5 Ab)-positive dermatomyositis (DM) patients, a combination of corticosteroids, cyclophosphamide, and calcineurin inhibitor is recommended. However, some of these patients have poor prognoses despite such intensive treatment. Other more effective treatments are desired. We report the case of an anti-MDA5 Ab-positive DM patient who had developed RPILD despite...
