29 Possible Causes for Biopsy Shows Effacement of Foot Processes

  • Acute Interstitial Nephritis

    Her renal failure soon recovered, and renal biopsy showed acute interstitial nephritis by light microscopy with glomerular foot process effacement by electron microscopy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A renal biopsy showed acute interstitial nephritis with podocyte foot-process effacement. He was treated with artesunate and his renal function improved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] foot processes with no deposits.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anuria

    […] and partial foot process effacement.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 1-hour biopsy specimen showed large periodic acid-Schiff-positive granules within the cells of the swollen proximal tubule, while electron microscopy revealed podocyte swelling[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These findings were worse on day 2 biopsy. Massive proteinuria and anuria were then observed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Fabry Disease

    After 3 years of the ERT, repeat biopsy showed little renal GL-3 deposition, resolution of foot process effacement, and a dramatic improvement in nephrin expression.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Despite normal renal function and urinalysis, renal biopsy showed abnormal structure, with marked accumulation of GL-3 in podocytes, partial effacement of foot processes and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congenital Nephrotic Syndrome

    A month later, a renal biopsy showed only glomerular foot process effacement. She was treated with high-dose methylprednisolone pulses and oral cyclophosphamide.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Nephrotic Syndrome

    Biopsy showed diffuse foot-process effacement consistent with minimal change disease and findings of acute tubular injury.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Kidney biopsy showed diffuse loss of podocyte cytoarchitecture, extensive foot-process effacement, and glomerular endothelial injury.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Light microscopy of renal biopsy samples shows no change, on electron microscopy, effacement of the foot processes can be seen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Multiple Myeloma

    […] with diffuse effacement of foot processes on electron microscopy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CASE REPORT A 48-year-old man presented with nephrotic syndrome and renal impairment and was diagnosed with primary FSGS after kidney biopsy, which showed a segmental scar[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lipoid Nephrosis

    Subsequent biopsies may show only foot process effacement, but glomerulosclerosis eventually appears unless a remission can be induced.[doi.org] Renal biopsy of a 10-years-old girl with NS; the immunofluorescence was negative and the ultrastructural study showed foot processes effacement (“simplification”), without[kidneypathology.com] […] mesangial prominence), negative staining on immunoflouorescence microscopy (or low-level staining for C3 and IgM), and foot process effacement but no electron-dense deposits[doi.org]

  • Drug-induced Hypokalemia

    Electron microscopy showed epithelial foot process effacement and electron-dense deposits in the subendothelial and mesangial spaces.[bmcnephrol.biomedcentral.com] A kidney biopsy revealed findings typical of ATIN and focal granular deposits of immunoglubulin A and complement 3 in the glomeruli and tubules.[bmcnephrol.biomedcentral.com]

  • Focal Glomerulosclerosis

    Electron microscopy reveals diffuse effacement of podocyte foot processes in idiopathic cases but may show patchy effacement in secondary cases.[merckmanuals.com] Subsequent biopsies may show only foot process effacement, but glomerulosclerosis eventually appears unless a remission can be induced.[doi.org] Effacement of foot processes on electron microscopy is the initial finding on renal biopsy, appearing within one week of recurrence.[intechopen.com]

  • Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis

    […] with diffuse effacement of foot processes on electron microscopy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electron microscopy shows widespread blunting, widening and effacement of epithelial foot processes (Fig 2),...[arkanalabs.com] Subsequent biopsies may show only foot process effacement, but glomerulosclerosis eventually appears unless a remission can be induced.[doi.org]
