  • Twelve patients (19%) presented initially to nephrologists with abnormal renal function and/or abnormal urinalysis and were subsequently found to have infective endocarditis.[academic.oup.com]
  • Before delivery, seven of the nine had abnormal renal function. One patient who had glomerulosclerosis and ARF died 3 days after termination of her pregnancy at 16 weeks' gestation.[glowm.com]

  • C 16 Corticosteroid treatment has no proven benefit, but is recommended by some physicians for persons with nephrotic syndrome who are not responsive to conservative treatment.[aafp.org]
  • Adult prognosis is variable and largely related to the underlying cause, its severity, progression and response to any treatment used to modify it.[patient.info]

Prognosis

  • Most importantly, we performed repeat biopsy to elucidate the prognosis and turnover of this condition.[spandidos-publications.com]
  • Prognosis This is very variable depending on the underlying cause. Congenital nephrotic syndrome usually carries a very poor prognosis. Corticosteroids have reduced the mortality rate in children to around 3% [ 17 ].[patient.info]
  • The prognosis is significantly influenced by proper diagnosis and adequate therapy. In cases with unconfirmed IE, besides careful clinical examination, transesophageal echocardiography is the imaging technique of choice.[link.springer.com]

Etiology

  • The etiology may be embolic or immune. The association with Streptococcus viridans during the pre antibiotic era has been superceded by a more frequent association with Staphylococcus aureus.[rwjms1.umdnj.edu]

  • ANTIBIOTICS There are no data from prospective clinical trials about treatment and prevention of infection in adults with nephrotic syndrome.[aafp.org]
  • Good control of blood sugar levels and blood pressure may prevent or slow kidney damage.[medigoo.com]
