Nail-Patella-Like Renal Disease

Salcedo Syndrome


Presentation

  • Written by leading pathologists, this second edition presents an up-to-date , concise presentation of major pathological, clinical, pathophysiological, and genetic information for over 240 diagnoses .[books.google.de]
  • Abstract A newborn boy is presented with proteinuria, edema, aplasia of patellae, and extension defect in the elbows. Seven of his relatives have, or have had, nephropathy and skeletal deformities and two of them have only skeletal deformities.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]
  • Deformities of the knees may be present. Patellae may be absent or hypoplastic. Osteoarthritic changes may be present.[boneandspine.com]
  • Proteinuria may present at any age from birth onwards and may be intermittent. Renal problems may present, or be exacerbated, during pregnancy.[checkorphan.org]
  • Knee abnormalities are present in approximately 92% of cases. How are elbows affected in NPS patients? Elbow abnormalities occur in approximately 90% of cases.[npsw.org]
Asymptomatic
  • Once proteinuria is present, it may remit spontaneously, remain asymptomatic, or progress to nephrotic syndrome and occasionally to ESRD. Progression to renal failure may appear to occur rapidly or after many years of asymptomatic proteinuria.[checkorphan.org]
  • The individual with NPS may remain asymptomatic for a long while despite showing the visual signs of having misshaped nails.[news-medical.net]
  • Nephropathy was disclosed in four of the five related members with skeletal dysplasia; the three were in uremic, the one, a 32-year-old man, was remaining in asymptomatic proteinuria and the other, a 6-year-old girl, was negative for proteinuria.[jstage.jst.go.jp]
  • In autosomal recessive diseases, heterozygotes are usually asymptomatic and kidney donations are usually accepted. This occurs mainly in nephropediatrics.[revistanefrologia.com]
  • Initially, affected individuals may have no apparent symptoms (asymptomatic). As fluid pressure increases, some individuals with the condition may develop mild headaches, blurred vision, and/or the appearance of “halos” around certain lights.[rarediseases.org]

  • Still’s disease is an inflammatory condition characterized by high fevers, rash, sore throat, and joint pain. As it progresses, adult-onset Still’s disease may lead to chronic arthritis and other complications.[checkrare.com]
Thrombosis
  • Other causes of the neonatal nephrotic syndrome, such as congenital nephrosis, congenital syphilis, and renal vein thrombosis could be excluded.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]
  • Due to risk of cardiovascular complications, including stroke, thrombosis, and death, the lowest dose of these agents needed to keep the Hb between 10 and 11 g/dL is used.[merckmanuals.com]
Hyperhidrosis
  • Nails Triangular lunulae, micronychia with hernionychia, anonychia, longitudinal fissures (thumb index finger other fingers; rare on toes) Skin Palmoplantar hyperhidrosis Musculoskeletal Absent or hypoplastic patella with secondary pain, gait bnormalities[cram.com]
  • Patient often complains of palmoplantar hyperhidrosis. Other nail abnormalities in patients with NPS are like splitting, longitudinal ridging, koilonychias, etc.[medigoo.com]
Flexion Contracture
  • In addition to the previously mentioned patellar abnormalities, tight hamstring muscles may cause flexion contractures of the knees. There may also be osteochondritis dissecans, synovial plicae, and absence of the anterior cruciate ligament.[checkorphan.org]

Workup

Foam Cell
  • In addition to these histological findings, there was an unusual mass larger than glomerulus, consisting of clear cells, which was estimated to be grouping of foam cells, probably originated from endotherial or muscular cells of interlobular artery of[jstage.jst.go.jp]

Treatment

  • The book also details the general management of the patient with renal failure and the treatment of various causative diseases.[link.springer.com]
  • Physical Therapy: Although this is an effective treatment, patients can risk aggravating their joint issues. Physical therapy often complements other orthopedic treatments.[marijuanadoctors.com]
  • Read about treatment for patello-femoral pain.[syndromespedia.com]
  • Treatment and Drugs The treatment for NPS and glaucoma depends upon the severity of each case. In general, glaucoma cannot be cured, but it can be controlled.[umkelloggeye.org]
  • There is no cure for the syndrome, but specialized treatments are available to address each of the presenting complications. Treatments vary based on the severity of the symptoms.[study.com]

Prognosis

  • The incidence and prognosis of nephropathy in HOOD is discussed on the basis of the reported family and data from the literature. Received November 25, 1969. Accepted February 4, 1970.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]
  • Prognosis of Nail Patella Syndrome 30-55% of patients with nail-patella syndrome develop a renal disease and end-stage renal disease may develop in about 5%. Prognosis after renal transplantation is good.[boneandspine.com]
  • Favorable course of collagenofibrotic glomerulopathy after kidney transplantation and questionnaire survey about the prognosis of collagenofibrotic glomerulopathy. Nihon Jinzo Gakkai Shi 2004;46:360-4. 10.[ijpmonline.org]
  • Prognosis Symptoms vary from person to person and for one person through time. The long-term prognosis is extremely variable. One person may exhibit mild symptoms, while another person may become wheelchair-bound or require a kidney transplant.[encyclopedia.com]
  • […] cases scoliosis can be severe and require surgery (also see tethered cord syndrome ) In some cases kidney transplantation is required Other treatment Physical therapy Braces, splints for skeletal deformities Social support [4,5] Life expectancy The prognosis[syndromespedia.com]

Etiology

  • Though deposition of collagen type III prompts us to connect the two diseases, the etiological link remains to be discovered. [6] CG, a rare glomerular deposition disease, often encountered in the Asian population, is also reported from other parts of[ijpmonline.org]
