Nephrotic Syndrome Type 9



  • Uses the same consistent, step-by-step presentation in every chapter: History, Physical Examination, Diagnosis (including laboratory tests), Imaging, Diagnosis, and Treatment.[books.google.com]
  • We believe that the findings presented here are unique and may be beneficial when treating similar cases.[bmcnephrol.biomedcentral.com]
  • Congenital nephrotic syndrome presents before three months of age.[lecturio.com]
Behavior Disorder
  • Covers new approaches to diagnostic imaging and genetic testing, new diagnostic guidelines, BRUE (brief resolved unexplained event), stroke in children, behavior disorders, syncope, recurrent fever syndromes, and much more.[books.google.com]

  • Clinical Testing and Workup In affected infants, symptoms associated with nephrotic syndrome may become apparent within days, weeks, months, or in some cases, years after birth.[rarediseases.org]
Nodular Glomerulosclerosis


  • The disorder is steroid treatment-resistant and usually progresses to end-stage renal disease requiring transplantation. Renal biopsy shows focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) or collapsing FSGS (summary by Ashraf et al., 2013).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Progression and Prognosis of Childhood Nephrotic Syndrome Pediatric or childhood nephrotic syndrome show good prognosis by medication. 90% of MCNS responds to corticosteroids with an excellent prognosis.[lecturio.com]
  • The prognosis for NS is highly dependent on the underlying cause, the disease histology, and patient clinical factors.[aafp.org]
  • The majority of patients with NS respond to steroid therapy and have a good clinical prognosis.[cyberleninka.org]
  • 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]
  • When diagnosed with FSGS, patients can not help concerning about their prognosis. In this article, let’s see more corresponding information.[pinterest.fr]


  • Etiology of Childhood Nephrotic Syndrome The etiology of the pediatric nephrotic syndrome can be understood by the following points: Primary (idiopathic) nephrotic syndrome Minimal change nephrotic syndrome (MCNS, minimal change disease) is the most common[lecturio.com]
  • Whereas 80 % of children in western countries be steroid responsive, studies from South Africa, Nigeria more recently Ghana show that only 9 % to 50 % of children with nephrotic syndrome are steroid responsive. 18 ETIOLOGY The etiology of nephrotic syndrome[slideplayer.com]

  • Abstract Castleman's Disease (CD) is an uncommon and poorly understood disorder of lymph node hyperplasia of unknown etiology.[sjkdt.org]


  • Epidemiology Nephrotic syndrome can affect children of any age, from infancy to adolescence, and is most commonly seen among school-aged children and adolescents.[pedsinreview.aappublications.org]
  • According to our review of relevant literature, no epidemiologic study has investigated the incidence of nephrotic syndrome following enteroviral infection.[journals.plos.org]

  • B 15 Epidemiology The annual incidence of NS in adults is three per 100,000 persons. Approximately 80% to 90% of NS cases in adults are idiopathic.[aafp.org]
  • Epidemiology Nephrotic syndrome is a common glomerular disease in children with significant variability in both incidence and steroid responsiveness among various ethnic groups.[patient.info]

  • The goals of treatment are to relieve symptoms, prevent complications, and delay kidney damage. To control nephrotic syndrome, the disorder that is causing it must be treated. You may need treatment for life.[medlineplus.gov]
