  • Acute Renal Failure Secondary to an Unusual Familial Metabolic Myopathy
    • Abstract: Rhabdomyolysis is a major cause of acute kidney failure. The etiology is diverse, from full-blown crush syndrome to less frequent causes, such as metabolic myopathy. We describe the case of a 35-year-old male with a history of intermittent myalgias who was admitted to hospital with acute renal failure secondary to rhabdomyolysis. Moderate to intense diffuse uptake of technetium-99m was seen in soft tissues at scintigraphy. The diagnosis of metabolic myopathy was confirmed after careful workup and genetic testing.

  • Serum Urate Lowering Therapy Using Allopurinol Improves Serum 25 Hydroxy
           Vitamin D in Stage 3-5 CKD Patients: A Pilot Study
    • Abstract: Background: Recent studies have demonstrated negative associations of serum uric acid (SUA) with serum 25 hydroxy vitamin D (25 [OH] vit D) among CKD patients. Objective: The aim of the study was to look for the impact of hypouricemic therapy using allopurinol on serum level of 25 (OH) vit D in CKD patients. Cases and Methods: Seventy-two CKD stage 3–5 patients were selected to this study. Patients with SUA above 7 mg/dL were allocated to hypouricemic therapy using allopurinol (group I). A control group of cases not suffering marked increase in SUA were included as control group (group II). All cases were followed up for 3 months. Serum Cr, SUA, ionized calcium (SiCa), phosphorus, 25 (OH) vitD, parathyroid hormone (PTH), and 24-h urine protein were estimated at entry and by the end of the study. Results: At least 20 cases completed the study in each group. Serum 25 (OH) vit D significantly increased in group I (26.4 [14.1] vs. 39.6 [14.8] at entry vs. at end of the study, p #x3c; 0.001). In addition, SUA, PTH, and urine protein significantly decreased (11 [1.6] vs. 3.95 [0.58] mg/dL, 267.5 [97.5] vs. 225.5 [153] ng/mL, and 2.7 [1.18] vs. 1.5 [1.08] gm/day, p #x3c; 0.001, = 0.043, and #x3c;0.001 respectively). SiCa and phosphorus significantly increased (4.4 [0.3] vs. 5.2 [0.5] mg/dL and 4.25 [0.72] vs. 4.9 [0.75] mg/dL, p #x3c; 0.001 and = 0.007, respectively). Conclusion: This study supports a negative causal relationship between SUA and serum 25 (OH) vit D. Further studies are still needed to confirm this conclusion.

  • Decreased Circulating Transitional B-Cell to Memory B-Cell Ratio Is a Risk
           Factor for Relapse in Children with Steroid-Sensitive Nephrotic Syndrome
    • Abstract: Introduction: A significant proportion of children with SSNS (steroid-sensitive nephrotic syndrome) experience recurrence. Reliable biomarkers to predict flare are currently lacking because the pathogenesis of SSNS remains obscure. Objective: Since B cells may be involved in the pathogenesis of SSNS, we aimed to identify perturbations of B-cell subsets that might predict SSNS relapse. Methods: We measured levels of circulating B-cell subsets in 69 SSNS children by flow cytometry, between 2018 and 2019. We divided them into a relapse group and a nonrelapse group according to whether a relapse occurred within 1 year of follow-up. We used Cox survival analysis to assess correlations between B-cell subsets and relapse. In addition, recurrence-free survival curves were calculated using the Kaplan-Meier method. Results: The proportion of transitional B cells was significantly lower in the relapse group (5.3 ± 5.1% vs. 8.7 ± 4.3% in nonrelapse group, p = 0.007), while the proportion of memory B cells was significantly higher (8.4 ± 3.0% vs. 5.8 ± 3.3% in nonrelapse, p = 0.002). There was a significant decrease in the transitional B-cell to memory B-cell ratio (T/M) in the relapse group (p #x3c; 0.001). Univariate analysis revealed that transitional B cells, memory B cells, and the T/M ratio were significantly correlated with relapse in SSNS patients (p #x3c; 0.05). Multivariate analysis revealed that only T/M ratio (hazard ratio 0.278, 95% confidence interval 0.085–0.908, p = 0.034) was an independent risk factor for recurrence-free survival in SSNS patients. A cutoff value for the T/M ratio of 1.16 resulted in a sensitivity of 90% and specificity of 80% (area under the curve 0.909; p #x3c; 0.001). Kaplan-Meier curves of cumulative relapse-free survival, stratified by this cutoff value, were constructed, which showed that the cumulative relapse-free rates for cutoff values of #x3e;1.16 (n = 38) and ≤1.16 (n = 31) were 76.3 and 29.0%, respectively (χ2 = 18.416, p #x3c; 0.001). Conclusions: Decreased transitional B/memory B ratio is associated with SSNS recurrence in the reported cohort. Thus, it may prove to be a useful marker to predict SSNS relapse in children.

  • Estimation of Missing Baseline Serum Creatinine for Acute Kidney Injury
           Diagnosis in Hospitalized Patients
    • Abstract: Introduction: In hospitalized patients, information on preadmission kidney function is often missing, impeding timely and accurate acute kidney injury (AKI) detection and affecting results of AKI-related studies. Objective: In this study, we provided estimates of preadmission serum creatinine (SCr), based on a multivariate linear regression (Model 1) and random forest model (Model 2) built with different parametrizations. Their accuracy for AKI diagnosis was compared with the accuracy of commonly used surrogate methods: (i) SCr at hospital admission (first SCr) and (ii) SCr back-calculated from the assumed estimated glomerular filtration rate of 75 mL/min/1.73 m2 (eGFR 75). Methods: From 44,670 unique adult admissions to a tertiary referral centre between 2013 and 2015, we analysed 8,540 patients with preadmission SCr available. To control for differences in characteristics of patients with and without SCr, we used an inverse probability weighting technique. Results: Estimates of SCr were likely to be higher than true preadmission SCr in a low Cr concentration and undervalued in high concentrations although for Model 2 Complete-SCr these differences were smallest. The true cumulative incidence of AKI was 14.8%. Model 2 Complete-SCr had the best agreement for AKI diagnosis (kappa 0.811, 95% CI 0.787–0.835), while surrogate methods resulted in the lowest agreement: (kappa 0.553, 0.516–0.590) and (0.648, 0.620–0.676) for first SCr and eGFR 75, respectively. Conclusions: Multivariable imputation of preadmission SCr, taking into account elementary admission data, improved accuracy in AKI diagnosis over commonly used surrogate methods. Random forest-based models can serve as an effective tool in research.

  • COVID-19 in Renal Transplant Recipients: Case Series and a Brief Review of
           Current Evidence
    • Abstract: By April 26, 2020, infections related to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) affected people from 210 countries and caused 203,818 reported deaths worldwide. A few studies discussed the outcome of COVID-19 in kidney transplant recipients. This short series demonstrates our experience in managing COVID-19 disease in renal transplant patients in the absence of strong evidence. We report 8 cases of kidney transplant recipients infected with COVID-19 (median age = 48.5 years; range = 21–71 years), including 4 males and 4 females. The most frequently associated comorbidity was hypertension. The most common presenting features were fever and cough. The main radiological investigation was a portable chest X-ray. Other common features included lymphopenia, high C-reactive protein, and a very high ferritin level. Overall, 1 patient was managed as an outpatient, the remaining 7 required hospital admission, 1 of them referred to the intensive therapy unit. Management included supportive treatment (intravenous fluid therapy, monitoring renal function, and symptomatic treatment with or without ward-based oxygen therapy depending on oxygen saturation) and discontinuation of the antiproliferative immunosuppressive drugs. Seven patients recovered and discharged home to self-isolate. One patient required intensive care treatment and mechanical ventilation. Supportive treatment could be sufficient for the management or to be tried first. We also found that short hospital stay with self-isolation on discharge reduces the burden on the health service and protect the staff and the public.

  • Atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome and Nephrotic Syndrome Associated with
           Cytomegalovirus Infection
    • Abstract: Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) is a rare disease. It results from the dysregulation of the alternative complement pathway on the cell surface which causes endothelial damage. Increasing evidence links, these abnormalities to mutations in genes of complement regulators or with autoantibodies against complement factors. These mutations have an incomplete penetrance and variable phenotype. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is endemic throughout the world, and the incidence of severe CMV disease in immunocompetent adults appears to be greater than previously thought. aHUS and nephrotic syndromes associated with CMV infection are rare. Identification of triggers for aHUS manifestation in a genetically susceptible patient is extremely important since this permits a faster initiation of treatment and clinical improvement. We report a case of a man with a homozygotic deletion of CFHR3-1 whose initial presentation was aHUS and nephrotic syndromes associated with CMV infection.

  • Prevalence of Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Celiac Disease in Patients
           with IgA Nephropathy over Time
    • Abstract: Introduction: IgA nephropathy (IgAN) has been connected with increased intestinal permeability and subclinical intestinal mucosal inflammation as well as with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and celiac disease – nevertheless, the results are controversial. The prevalence of bowel diseases has increased over time in Western populations. Whether similar trend is seen among IgAN patients remains obscure. Our aim was to study the prevalence of IBD and celiac disease in IgAN patients over time. Methods: The study cohort consisted of altogether 629 patients with newly diagnosed IgAN during years 1976–2012. Data on diagnosis of IBD and celiac disease were retrospectively collected from medical records. Further, to detect unrecognized celiac disease, IgA-class tissue transglutaminase antibodies (tTGA) were measured from serum samples taken at the time of kidney biopsy during years 1980–2012 (defined as screen-detected celiac disease autoimmunity). Results: The prevalence of IBD among IgAN patients increased over time from 0 to 4.4%, while the prevalence of clinically diagnosed celiac disease decreased from 2.6 to 0.6%. Moreover, the number of screen-detected tTGA-positive cases decreased from the 1980s to the 21st century (2.8–0.7%). Conclusion: The prevalence of IBD increased over time in IgAN patients, which exceeds the prevalence of 0.6% in Finnish general population. In parallel, the prevalence of celiac disease and screen-detected celiac disease autoimmunity decreased over time. The coexistence of IBD and IgAN is not negligible. Whether this finding is caused by the increase in the prevalence of IBD in the population or shared pathophysiology between IgAN and IBD remains a matter of further studies.

  • The Use of HbA1c, Glycated Albumin and Continuous Glucose Monitoring to
           Assess Glucose Control in the Chronic Kidney Disease Population Including
    • Abstract: Background: Glycated haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) has limitations as a glycemic marker for patients with diabetes and CKD and for those receiving dialysis. Glycated albumin is an alternative glycemic marker, and some studies have found that glycated albumin more accurately reflects glycemic control than HbA1c in these groups. However, several factors are known to influence the value of glycated albumin including proteinuria. Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is another alternative to HbA1c. CGM allows one to assess mean glucose, glucose variability, and the time spent in hypo-, normo-, and hyperglycemia. Currently, several different CGM models are approved for use in patients receiving dialysis; CKD (not on dialysis) is not a contraindication in any of these models. Some devices are for blind recording, while others provide real-time data to patients. Small studies suggest that CGM could improve glycemic control in hemodialysis patients, but this has not been studied for individual CKD stages. Summary: Glycated albumin and CGM avoid the pitfalls of HbA1c in CKD and dialysis populations. However, the value of glycated albumin may be affected by several factors. CGM provides a precise estimation of the mean glucose. Here, we discuss the strengths and limitations for using HbA1c, glycated albumin, or CGM in CKD and dialysis population. Key Messages: Glycated albumin is an alternative glycemic marker but is affected by proteinuria. CGM provides a precise estimation of mean glucose and glucose variability. It remains unclear if CGM improves glycemic control in the CKD and dialysis populations.
