Renal Histological Findings in Adults in Jamaica

Issue: 
Pages: 
265–9
Synopsis: 
For primary glomerular disease, focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis, minimal and membranous glomerulonephritis were the most frequent histological types.

ABSTRACT

Background: In 2006, it was reported that Focal and Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), Minimal Change Disease (MCD) and Membranous Glomerulonephritis (MGN) were the commonest primary glomerular diseases identified from percutaneous kidney biopsies done in Jamaica for that year (n = 76). The sample size was thought to be small and might have affected the reported findings. So a threeyear review of percutaneous kidney biopsies in Jamaica was carried out.

Chronic Kidney Disease in the Caribbean

Issue: 
Pages: 
464–70
Synopsis: 
The leading causes of bhronic kidney disease in the Caribbean are hypertension and diabetes mellitus. The incidence of these two non-communicable diseases is rising in the Caribbean and prevention methods must be scaled-up to decrease the morbidity and mortality associated with them.

Mycophenolate Mofetil in Minimal Change Nephrosis

Issue: 
Pages: 
330–1
Synopsis: 
The use of mycophenolate mofetil in the treatment of steroid resistant minimal change disease has not been extensively studied, particularly in the African Caribbean population. This case highlights its use in steroid resistant nephrotic syndrome in an Afro-Caribbean adolescent.

INTRODUCTION

The use of mycophenolate mofetil in the treatment of steroid resistant minimal change disease has not been extensively studied, particularly in the African Caribbean population. This drug has fewer side effects than most immunosuppressants. On this basis, it may be preferred by both patient and physician. This case report highlights its use in a patient with minimal change nephrosis.

The Importance of Bone Biomarkers in the Diagnosis of Renal Osteodystrophy

Issue: 
Pages: 
332–7
Synopsis: 
A combination of serum biochemical markers might predict underlying renal osteodystrophy better than would individual biochemical markers. A predictive model using bone histology and biochemical markers can be developed in the future.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To evaluate the association of serum biochemical markers in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) in Jamaica for early detection of renal osteodystrophy (ROD).
