  • Endocan levels in children with renal hypodysplasia
    • Authors: Fatma Semsa Cayci, Zehra Aydin, Ismail Selcuk Aygar, Begum Avci, Mihriban Inozu, Ozlem Yuksel Aksoy, Umut Selda Bayrakci
      Abstract: CONCLUSION: To our knowledge, this was the first study that evaluated serum and urinary endocan levels in children with RHD. Although serum endocan level was found to be significantly higher in patients with RHD, further studies are needed to validate whether endocan could serve as a marker of poor renal prognosis in RHD.

  • IgG4-related kidney disease with systemic Epstein-Barr virus infection: A
           case report
    • Authors: Yan Zhong, W Dean Wallace, Annika Khine, Chandnish Ahluwalia, Miroslaw J Smogorzewski
      Abstract: IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a newly recognized multi-organ fibro-inflammatory condition with characteristic histopathological findings of increased IgG4+ plasma cells in tissue and usually with increased IgG4 serum levels. Kidney involvement in IgG4-RD has been well described since 2006. Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) has reportedly been associated with nodal IgG4-RD, but not in extra-nodal disease. We report a case of renal IgG4-RD in the setting of acute EBV infection in a young healthy man,...

      Abstract: CONCLUSION: The Oxford MEST classification offers a robust and expressive classification for early and late disease progression with respect to the development of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). E and S seem to be indices of continuing disease activity with progressive glomerulosclerosis, probably still amenable to therapy, but T was a predictive indicator for those destined for ESRD and no longer amenable to therapy.

  • The relevance of performing 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure and pulse
           wave analysis in kidney transplant recipients
    • Authors: Luvuyo Mzingeli, Erika Jones, Zunaid Barday, Brian Rayner
      Abstract: Hypertension guidelines recommend out-of-office blood pressure (BP) measurement especially 24-hour ambulatory measurement (ABPM), to diagnose and manage hypertension but this is not routinely performed in kidney transplant units. This study was to determine if 24-hour ABPM, compared with office BP in kidney transplant recipients, would be more informative regarding BP management, and if pulse wave analysis (PWA) would assist in risk stratification. This study included patients older than 18...

      Abstract: Pigmented urine in a hospitalized patient has a broad differential diagnosis including urinary tract infection or bacterial colonization, hemolysis, rhabdomyolysis, and drugs. We present a case of purple urine in a patient who received methylene blue and hydroxocobalamin for catecholamine-refractory vasodilatory shock. The patient's purple urinary discoloration is presumed to have resulted from a combination of the blue and red pigments of methylene blue and hydroxocobalamin, respectively. As...

      Abstract: Common side effects of mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) are diarrhea, leukopenia, and infectious complication. The polymorphisms of enzymes affecting MMF clearance could be related to MMF toxicity, and in vitro study revealed that high MMF levels might cause endothelial dysfunction. A 7-year-old Korean male with end-stage renal disease on peritoneal dialysis due to mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis received a kidney transplantation (KT) from a deceased donor, and immunosuppressive...

      Abstract: The first documented case of SARS-CoV-2 infection was confirmed in South Africa (SA) in March 2020. The Western Cape (WC) province was the initial epicenter. The pandemic peaked in July 2020 when 76,851 cases were documented and 2,323 deaths reported. COVID-19 can have multisystem involvement. Acute kidney injury (AKI) is well-documented and associated with increased mortality. We report our experience as the pandemic evolved in the WC province, focusing on those patients with a SARS-CoV-2...

  • Unusual ischemic kidney injury presenting as slowly declining graft
           function and successful use of oral desmopressin in a kidney transplant
           recipient with subclinical central diabetes insipidus
    • Authors: Shuzo Kaneko, Joichi Usui, Kunio Kawanishi, Ryota Ishii, Kazuhiro Takahashi, Hiroaki Suzuki, Chie Saito, Tatsuya Oda, Michio Nagata, Kunihiro Yamagata
      Abstract: Polyuria in post-kidney transplant (KT) patients is a common condition generally attributed to delayed tubular function, fluid administration, and solute diuresis. Since excessive water intake post-KT physiologically suppresses arginine vasopressin (AVP) secretion, central diabetes insipidus (CDI) caused by deficient primary AVP release can be overlooked. Although DDAVP (desmopressin) - a selective AVP V2 receptor agonist - has been used to treat massive polyuria, CDI rarely progresses to kidney...

      Abstract: Living with chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with hardships for patients and their care-partners. Empowering patients and their care-partners, including family members or friends involved in their care, may help minimize burden and consequences of CKD-related symptoms to enable life participation. There is a need to broaden the focus on living well with kidney disease and re-engagement in life, including emphasis on patients being in control. The World Kidney Day (WKD) Joint Steering...

  • Hypophosphatemia and FGF23 tumor-induced osteomalacia in two cases of
           metastatic breast cancer
    • Authors: Matthew Abramson, Ilya G Glezerman, Maya Srinivasan, Richard Ross, Carlos Flombaum, Victoria Gutgarts
      Abstract: Tumor-induced osteomalacia (TIO) is a rare paraneoplastic syndrome characterized by factor-induced dysregulation of phosphate and vitamin D metabolism resulting in alterations in bone formation, leading to bone pain and fractures. While the true incidence is likely underestimated, less than 500 cases of TIO have been reported since initial description in 1947. TIO cases have classically been associated with mesenchymal tumors of bone and soft tissue, but have also rarely been linked to malignant...

           amyloidosis and end-stage kidney disease: Two case reports
    • Authors: Makoto Fukuda, Naoki Sawa, Junichi Hoshino, Kenichi Ohashi, Miyazono Motoaki, Yoshifumi Ubara
      Abstract: Case 1: A 59-year-old Japanese woman with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) for 36 years was admitted for evaluation of deteriorating renal function. Her serum creatine was 4.2 mg/dL, and proteinuria was 6.5 g daily. Renal and duodenal biopsy revealed AA amyloidosis. After treatment with tocilizumab (a humanized anti-interleukin-6 receptor antibody), proteinuria decreased to 1.1 g daily. The patient's renal function subsequently remained stable for 8 years. Case 2: A 71-year-old Japanese man with RA for...

      Abstract: INTRODUCTION: In December 2019, a new respiratory disease, named COVID-19, caused by a novel coronavirus, emerged in Wuhan and since then spread rapidly throughout China and worldwide. Hemodialysis patients are an especially vulnerable subgroup of the general population. However, there are only a few reports on the course of COVID-19 in maintenance hemodialysis patients.

  • Persistent urinary phosphate wasting in a patient with metastatic breast
           cancer: What's your diagnosis'
    • Authors: Bhavna Bhasin, Juan Carlos Q Velez
      Abstract: Tumor-induced osteomalacia (TIO) can cause severe, persistent hypo-phosphatemia due to high fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF-23) levels, which lead to uri-nary phosphate wasting. TIO is frequently encountered in association with mesenchy-mal tumors and responds well to resection of the primary malignancy. Rarely, TIO may be seen as a paraneoplastic phenomenon with solid organ malignancies where correction of biochemical abnormalities requires ongoing phosphorus replacement. We report a case of...

  • Diffuse "background" monoclonal light chain staining on kidney biopsies in
           the absence of electron-dense deposits - putting it into perspective: A
           retrospective cohort study
    • Authors: Anjali A Satoskar, Ahlim Alsanani, Sergey V Brodsky, Clarissa Cassol, Jason Prosek, Kiran Kandukurti, Isabelle Ayoub, Abdullah Khan, Srinivas Devarakonda, Tibor Nadasdy
      Abstract: CONCLUSION: It is important to recognize and document this finding in the biopsy report, but by itself, it should not be classified as MIg-associated kidney disease even in the face of strong staining intensity. A thorough hematologic work-up is critically important to unmask underlying active myeloma, which many patients may have. But equally important is to avoid inadvertent clone-directed therapy in patients who do not have active myeloma despite the background monoclonal staining. A protocol...

      Abstract: Acute kidney injury (AKI) occurs in 3.2 - 9.6% of hospital admissions and in 2.1 - 22.1% of prevalent intensive care unit patients, worldwide. There is a sexual dimorphism in the AKI evolution with implications of sex hormones, endothelin etc. We provide a mini-review on the gender-related differences in the AKI evolution.

    • Authors: Carlotta Caprara, Valentina Corradi, Elisa Scalzotto, Anna C Frigo, Marta Proglio, Rahul Sharma, Claudio Ronco
      Abstract: Backgroundː Chronic kidney disease stage G5 (CKD G5) patients show an activated but impaired immune system. One function of the FOXP3^(+) regulatory T (Treg) cells is to preserve tolerance to self while maintaining the ability to fight infectious agents. The aim of this pilot study is to evaluate longitudinal changes in Treg cells before and 1 month after the first dialysis treatment. Materials and methodsː CKD G5 patients not yet on dialysis were enrolled and started on hemodialysis (HD) or...
