Renal Biopsy Findings in Jamaican Children

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.


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.
