Renal Hematuria

Renal Haematuria


Presentation

  • IgA and IgM were present in 14 and 13 biopsy specimens, respectively. These findings suggest that idiopathic renal hematuria is a clinical syndrome rather than a single disease with varying underlying renal findings.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Here we present a case of an old lady who presented with erythema nodosum with painless haematuria (microscopic) which was later found to be of tuberculous aetiology.[banglajol.info]
  • Case presentation A 48-year-old Caucasian woman presented with gross hematuria, left flank pain, and clot retention.[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com]
  • We reviewed the medical history and data of these patients at initial presentation.[kjim.org]
  • Abstract A 54-year-old woman presented with gross painless haematuria. Initial workup showed no abnormality except mild hydronephrosis on CT scan.[ecommons.aku.edu]
Down Syndrome
  • —Our patient, an 8-year-old boy with Down's syndrome (documented trisomy of chromosome 21) and atrial-ventricular canal defect entered Strong Memorial Hospital after the rapid onset of fever to 40.6 C.[jamanetwork.com]
Steatorrhea

  • Seite 157 - Poley, JR: Role of bile acid malabsorption in pathogenesis of diarrhea and steatorrhea in patients with ileal resection. I. Response to cholestyramine or replacement of dietary long chain triglyceride by medium chain triglyceride. ‎[books.google.de]

Workup

  • Initial workup showed no abnormality except mild hydronephrosis on CT scan. Cystoscopy and retrograde pyelography did not find any gross lesion and her urine cytology was also negative.[ecommons.aku.edu]
  • Imaging workup for microscopic hematuria is controversial. Some academic societies advocate that in the absence of a known benign etiology (such as vigorous exercise, infection, or menstruation), then a CT urogram is warranted 3,4.[radiopaedia.org]
  • All imaging modalities have been used during diagnostic workup.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Trauma Renal calculi Renal cancer Bladder stone or cancer Acute glomerulonephritis Imaging workup of renal cancer and trauma is discussed elsewhere.[meddean.luc.edu]
  • The tests may be repeated on a 24-hour collection of the patient's urine, and a blood chemistry workup may be ordered. Cystourethroscopy, or cystoscopy, is performed when the cause of gross or microscopic hematuria cannot be identified.[healthcommunities.com]

Treatment

  • Endovascular treatment of a renal artery aneurysm and stenosis due to fibromuscular dysplasia. Nephrol Ther. 2008 Jun 9 Google Scholar 17.[link.springer.com]
  • There have been a few cases of treatment with radiotherapy and androgen deprivation [ 38 , 39 ].[hindawi.com]
  • Here are some common methods of polycystic kidney disease treatment.[belmarrahealth.com]
  • All clinics provide an excellent standard of care and superior customer service to ensure efficient diagnosis, quality treatment, and timely care for your patients.[mercyascot.co.nz]
  • The patient was immediately carried into the angiography room for endovascular treatment.[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com]

Prognosis

  • Both immunologic and nonimmunologic mechanisms may be involved, and the prognosis is favorable even in patients followed up for 11 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • No definitive prognosis is available for patients with IMH. Many previous studies have reported that the prognosis for patients with IMH is good, but some recent studies have reported poor outcomes.[kjim.org]
  • Treatment and prognosis Frank hematuria is almost always evaluated clinically, with cystoscopy, and with imaging (e.g. CT urogram ). Imaging workup for microscopic hematuria is controversial.[radiopaedia.org]
  • This familial condition is characterized by persistent microscopic hematuria with episodic gross hematuria and a favorable long-term prognosis. Although the pathogenesis is unclear, an immune process does not appear to be involved.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]
  • E-selectin: High concentrations in patient sera correlate with low incidence of metastasis and, consequently, correlate with good prognosis. Expression of elevated E-selectin facilitates metastasis.[clinicaladvisor.com]

Etiology

  • Some academic societies advocate that in the absence of a known benign etiology (such as vigorous exercise, infection, or menstruation), then a CT urogram is warranted 3,4.[radiopaedia.org]
  • Microscopic examination of the urine of family members in hematuria without an obvious etiology is warranted. Received January 24, 1969. Accepted April 17, 1969.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]
  • The more commonly encountered upper and lower urinary tract etiologies are listed in Table 3.[auanet.org]
  • Demographics: Etiology varies with patient age, type of hematuria (gross or microscopic, symptomatic or asymptomatic), and existence of risk factors for urologic malignancy (see below) o 5% of patients with microscopic hematuria and up to 40% of patients[errolozdalga.com]
  • Description Gross (visible) or microscopic (nonvisible) blood in the urine, either symptomatic or asymptomatic Epidemiology Prevalence Children: gross: 0.13%; asymptomatic microscopic hematuria (AMH): 0.4–4.1% Adults: AMH: 0.9–17%, depending on population Etiology[unboundmedicine.com]

Epidemiology

  • Abstract Background and objectives: This cross-sectional, epidemiological study sought to assess the prevalence and extent of potential risk factors for hypertension, particularly renal function related to haematuria and their associations in people with[portal.research.lu.se]
  • A third classification system is by epidemiology, which is good to keep in mind since common things occur commonly.[en.wikiversity.org]
  • EPIDEMIOLOGY The epidemiology of loin pain-hematuria syndrome (LPHS) is not well understood. Approximately one-half of our more than 200 LPHS patients reside in Central Ohio, which has a population of two million.[uptodate.com]
