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.
