mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis

Clinicopathological Features of Atypical Nephrotic Syndrome in Jamaican Children

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.


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.
