Paediatric Nephrology at the University Hospital of the West Indies ― A Walk through Time

Issue: 
Pages: 
415–7
Synopsis: 
Paediatric nephrology at the University Hospital of the West Indies is now an established paediatric subspecialty that has contributed to reduced mortality and morbidity associated with renal disease, earlier diagnosis of urological malformations and clear management guidelines for children with chronic kidney disease. Future goals include the development of a paediatric dialysis unit and enhancing kidney transplant.

Renal Manifestations in HIV-infected Jamaican Children

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.
