119 Possible Causes for Echogenic Kidneys, Rapidly Progressive Glomerulonephritis, small

  • Henoch-Schönlein Purpura

    Simultaneous involvement of small intestine and colon is rare.[] In two cases with rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis without response to steroid, after treatment with MMF, significant improvement in kidney function and proteinuria[] Ultrasound Echogenic kidneys, target or doughnut sign in case of intussusception.[]

  • Microscopic Polyangiitis

    IS SMALL-VESSEL VASCULITIS PRESENT?[] We describe a 30-year-old woman with rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis.[] Both kidneys exhibited mildly increased renal parenchymal echogenicity and normal size.[]

  • Renal Arteritis

    A renal biopsy showed granulomatous small arteritis without necrotic lesions or glomerular pathology.[] Contributor's Note: Crescentic glomerulonephritis or rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (RPGN) is a term given to a diverse group of diseases which all have cresents present[] echogenicity, with a slight reduction in the right kidney size, measuring 8.8 cm in its longest axis, and the left kidney measured 10.3 cm.[]

  • Idiopathic Cryoglobulinemia

    Abstract Cryoglobulinemia is a systemic inflammatory syndrome that generally involves small-to-medium vessel vasculitis due to cryoglobulin-containing immune complexes.[] Moroni G, Ponticelli C (2014) Rapidly progressive crescentic glomerulonephritis: Early treatment is a must. Autoimmun Rev 13: 723-729.[] MJT.0000000000000046 Case Reports Abstract Author Information Authors Article Metrics Metrics Cryoglobulinemia is a systemic inflammatory syndrome that generally involves small-to-medium[]

  • Goodpasture Syndrome

    Sottoclasse di secondary glomerular disease, secondary interstitial lung disease in childhood and adulthood associated with a systemic disease, predominantly small-vessel[] progressive glomerulonephritis.[] An ultrasound of abdomen revealed enlarged kidneys with increased cortical echogenicity with loss of corticomedullary differentiation.[]

  • Acute Glomerulonephritis

    We conclude that esthetic filler implants may cause microembolization into small vessels.[] Fever and fatigue are the most frequent presentations of rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis.[] Renal ultrasonography may show enlarged, echogenic kidneys. Chest radiography may be needed to assess for pulmonary edema.[]

  • Membranoproliferative Glomerulonephritis

    On light microscopy, there was circumferential calcification of the media and intima of affected vessels in the brain, including small arteries, small veins, and capillaries[] Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (numerous crescent cells on renal biopsy).[] Abdominal sonography showed normal sized kidneys with appropriate echogenicity. Ascitic fluid analysis revealed transudate with no abnormal cells.[]

  • Pauci-Immune Glomerulonephritis

    Yamaji H, Iizasa T, Koh E, et al: Correlation between interleukin 6 production and tumor proliferation in non-small cell lung cancer.[] Microscopic polyangiitis Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis – PAS stain Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis can be of 3 types : Type I (Anti-GBM antibody) Type II ([] Renal ultrasonography showed normal kidney size with increase of parenchymal echogenicity, mildly reduced cortical thickness and resistance indices increased.[]

  • Lupus Nephritis

    Recently, there has been interest in using novel biologic agents and small molecules to treat lupus nephritis.[] Kidney problems associated with lupus nephritis range from asymptomatic protein in the urine to rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis, leading to end-stage renal disease.[] Renal ultrasound showed kidneys of normal size, with increased echogenicity of the cortical parenchyma and decreased corticomedullary differentiation.[]

  • Post-Infectious Glomerulonephritis

    Glomerulonephritis is a disorder of the small blood vessels in the kidneys.[] The clinical presentation of PIGN varies from a benign asymptomatic condition to rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis requiring dialysis.[] Ultrasonography of the abdomen revealed bilateral renal echogenicity, compatible with renal disease.[]
