284 Possible Causes for Bilateral Small Kidneys

  • Hereditary Nephritis

    Ultrasound examination revealed bilateral small kidneys. He was severely hypertensive; audiometry and ophthalmic examinations were normal.[] Kidneys vary from very small to very large. When bilateral, renal function is severely affected resulting in oligohydramnios and Potter syndrome.[] In conclusion, this case serves to remind us: 1) that in patients presenting late to nephrologists with bilateral small kidneys, the diagnosis can still be made in some instances[]

  • Chronic Glomerulonephritis

  • Lupus Nephritis

    Relative contraindications to biopsy include the presence of a bleeding diathesis, solitary kidney and advanced kidney disease with bilaterally small kidneys.[]

  • Renal Tuberculosis

  • Scleroderma Renal Disease

    In our case, the patient was seen late with end-stage kidney failure with small bilateral kidneys contraindicating the realization of renal biopsy.[] Ultrasonographic scan of the abdomen revealed normal-sized kidneys with grade two renal parenchymal changes and small pleural effusions bilaterally.[]

  • Renal Agenesis

    To characterise better the involvement of RET and GDNF in kidney development defects, a series of 105 fetuses with bilateral defects, including renal agenesis, severe hypodysplasia[] It is important to differentiate between renal agenesis and a small atrophic kidney, and, of course, to ensure that the kidney is actually missing (i.e. check for a pelvic[] Minimal empiric risks to offspring of individuals with congenital solitary kidney are 7% congenital solitary kidney and 1% for bilateral renal agenesis.[]

  • Renal Coloboma Syndrome

    Our patient had bilateral small kidneys with renal insufficiency which currently progressed to end stage renal failure at the age of 15.[] Renal hypodysplasia is characterized by a decrease in nephron number, a small overall kidney size, and a maldeveloped renal tissue.[] Renal hypodyspasia associates bilateral non-obstructive renal dysplasia (BNORD) and bilateral non-obstructive renal hypoplasia(BNORH).[]

  • Aortic Arteriosclerosis

    The association between the severity of arteriosclerosis in the thoracic aorta in patients with isolated aortic stenosis (AS) and with concomitant coronary artery disease (CAD) has been not evaluated. Therefore, the aim of our study was to compare the thoracic aortic atheroma extent and severity in patients[…][]

  • Oligomeganephronia

    small kidneys.[] The condition is usually bilateral & inherited in autosomal recessive pattern. Both kidneys contain many hundreds of small cysts which result in renal insufficiency.[] We believe that multiple anomalies might be suggestive findings of OMN in patients, such as renal insufficiency, persistent proteinuria, and bilateral small kidneys.[]
