Clinicopathological Features of Atypical Nephrotic Syndrome in Jamaican Children

Issue: 
Pages: 
319–24
Synopsis: 
In this retrospective review of 157 renal biopsies in Jamaican children with nephrotic syndrome between 1985–2008, mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis predominated. Hypertension, hypocomplementaemia, anaemia and renal failure in childhood nephrotic syndrome predicted more severe nephritis and should prompt nephrological consultation.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: To document the histopathological spectrum of atypical nephrotic syndrome in Jamaican children and to make clinicopathological correlations which will assist physicians in identifying patients needing nephrology consultation.

Renal Biopsy Findings in Jamaican Children

Issue: 
Pages: 
325–9
Synopsis: 
In 270 Jamaican children undergoing renal biopsy, diffuse proliferative glomerulonephritis was the commonest histology observed. Hepatitis B caused 83.3% of membranous nephropathy. The role of infection in the pathogenesis of renal disease in Jamaican children is probably underestimated.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To document the histological findings in Jamaican children undergoing renal biopsy in order to determine the relative prevalence of varying types of glomerular disease in the island.
