  • The spectrum of biopsy-proven kidney diseases, causes, and renal outcomes
           in acute kidney injury patients

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: AbstractIntroduction: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a group of highly heterogeneous, complicated clinical syndromes. Although kidney biopsy plays an irreplaceable role in evaluating complex AKI, a few studies have focused on the clinicopathology of AKI biopsies. This study analyzed the pathological disease spectrum, causes, and renal outcomes of biopsied AKI patients.Methods: We retrospectively included 2,027 AKI patients who underwent kidney biopsies at a national clinical research center of kidney diseases from 2013 through 2018. To compare the biopsied AKI cases without and with coexisting glomerulopathy, patients were classified into acute tubular/tubulointerstitial nephropathy-associated AKI (ATIN-AKI) and glomerular disease-associated AKI (GD-AKI) groups. Results: Of 2,027 biopsied AKI patients, 65.1% were male, with a median age of 43 years. A total of 1,590 (78.4%) patients had coexisting GD, while only 437 (21.6%) patients had ATIN alone. The AKI patients with GD mainly (53.5%) manifested as stage 1 AKI, while most ATIN-AKI patients (74.8%) had stage 3 AKI. In the ATIN-AKI group, 256 (58.6%) patients had acute interstitial nephritis (AIN), and 77 (17.6%) had acute tubular injury (ATI). ATIN-AKI was mainly caused by drugs in 85.5% of AIN and 63.6% of ATI cases, respectively. In AKI patients with coexisting GD, the leading pathological diagnoses in over 80% of patients were IgA nephropathy (IgAN,22.5%), minimal change disease (MCD,17.5%), focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS,15.3%), lupus nephritis (LN,11.9%), membranous nephropathy (MN,10.2%), and ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV,4.7%). A total of 775 patients followed up within 3 months after renal biopsy; ATIN-AKI patients achieved statistically higher complete renal recovery than the GD-AKI patients (83.5% versus 70.5%, p < 0.001). Conclusions: Most biopsied AKI patients have coexisting GD, while ATIN alone is seen less frequently. ATIN-AKI is mainly caused by drugs. In GD-AKI patients, IgAN, MCD, FSGS, LN, MN, and AAV are the leading diagnoses. Compared to AKI patients without GD, patients with GD suffer from worse renal function recovery.

  • Clinicopathological characteristics and outcomes of renal sarcoidosis: A
           series study of 18 patients from a single center

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Introduction: Sarcoidosis is characterized by non-caseating granulomatous inflammation in multiple organs. Renal involvement is rare, and granulomatous tubulointerstitial nephritis (GIN) is the predominant histologic feature. Renal sarcoidosis (RS) is usually diagnosed by exclusion, combining clinical and histological findings, and often remains misdiagnosed. This retrospective study aimed to describe the characteristics and prognosis of patients with RS in China.Methods: 18 patients with RS from a single center were enrolled, of whom 15 had biopsy-proven tubulointerstitial nephritis. Their clinicopathological features and renal outcomes were analyzed to understand this rare disease better.Results: 18 patients (14 male/4 female) were included in our study. The median eGFR was 30.36 (11.57, 60.14) ml/min/1.73m2. In 15 patients undergoing a renal biopsy, GIN was the most common pathological phenotype (66.67%). 17 patients had follow-up records, with a median follow-up of 24.07 (8.82, 60.90) months. One month after treatment, median estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) increased significantly from 30.36 (11.57, 60.14) ml/min/1.73m2 to 58.53(39.35, 80.65) ml/min/1.73m2, and proteinuria decreased from 1.10 (0.69, 1.58) g/24h to 0.68 (0.52, 1.05) g/24h. No patients relapsed or developed end-stage renal disease.Conclusion: RS is a rare but important cause of tubulointerstitial injury, with a favorable long-term prognosis if properly diagnosed and treated promptly.

  • Factors Associated with Mortality and Long-Term Outcomes of Pediatric
           Acute Kidney Injury in a Resource Limited Setting

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Introduction: Despite being a leading cause of morbidity and mortality globally, acute kidney injury (AKI) is worse in resource-limited areas. This study explores AKI incidence, inhospital mortality, and long-term outcomes in resource-limited settings. Methods: This was a prospective study of children with AKI from 2014 to 2019. KDIGO 2012 defined AKI. We assessed the etiology, inhospital mortality, and long-term outcome of AKI in a mission hospital. Results: Only 169 of 201 AKI patients had complete data. The ages ranged from 1.08 months to 17.5 years; 65.7% were male and 65.1% were from lower socioeconomic class. The incidence of AKI was 59.6 cases per 1,000 persons (95% CI: 5.42, 47.1). Most patients had stage 1 KDIGO AKI (91; 53.8%). 1–5 years old had the highest incidence of AKI (65; 38.5%); sepsis (26.6%), severe malaria (15.4%), and nephrotic syndrome (14.8%) were common AKI causes. Fever (72.8%), pallor (52.1%), and vomiting (45.6%) were the most common symptoms. Thirty-two (27.8%) patients had high blood pressure. Inhospital mortality was 14.8% (95% CI: 9.8, 21.1). The cumulative incidence of AKI-related mortality was 93.2 per 1,000 person-years. Poor outcome was associated with breathlessness, hyponatremia, and leukocytosis. Kaplan-Meier survival curve showed 81% (CI: 74–87%) survival after 5 years of AKI. On Cox proportional-hazards analysis, the absence of breathlessness (HR: 2.537, 95%: CI 1.210–5.317) and hyponatremia (HR: 2.914, 95% CI: 1.343–6.324) were associated with increased survival. Conclusion: In resource-limited settings, infectious diseases and nephrotic syndrome are common causes of AKI. Factors associated with mortality include breathlessness and hyponatremia.

  • Real-World Phosphate Binder Use Among Dialysis-Dependent Patients With CKD

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Introduction: For patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), the need for phosphate binder (PB) treatment peaks at onset of dialysis. This real-world study assessed rates of PB utilization and switching in patients with dialysis-dependent CKD (DD-CKD).Methods: We identified patients with PB utilization among those with prevalent DD-CKD using 2018-2019 Medicare Parts A/B/D data. Patients were assigned to cohorts based on primary (most frequently used) PB among calcium acetate, ferric citrate, lanthanum carbonate, sevelamer (hydrochloride and carbonate), sucroferric oxyhydroxide. We measured proportion of patients who were adherent (proportion of days covered>80%) and persistent (patients whose last 90 days of outpatient dialysis reported PB use). Net switching rates were calculated as the difference between switches to and from the primary agent.Results: We identified 136,912 patients with PB use. Proportion of patients adherent ranged from 63.8% (lanthanum carbonate) to 67.7% (sevelamer) and persistent from 85.1% (calcium acetate) to 89.5% (ferric citrate). Most patients (73%) used the same PB throughout the study. Overall, 20.5% of patients experienced one switch and 2.3% two or more. Positive net switching rates were observed for ferric citrate, sucroferric oxyhydroxide, and lanthanum carbonate (2% to 10%) but negative for sevelamer and calcium acetate (–2% to –7%).Discussion/Conclusion: Adherence and persistence rates were low with slight variation across PBs. Net positive switching occurred for ferric citrate, sucroferric oxyhydroxide, and lanthanum carbonate. Further studies are needed to determine the reasons for these findings and could identify opportunities for better control of phosphate levels among patients with CKD.

           cells in kidney allografts

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Introduction: Multinucleated polyploidization (MNP) of tubular epithelial cells is occasionally observed in kidney allografts. The present study aimed to clarify the clinical and pathological significance of MNP of tubular epithelial cells in kidney allografts.Methods: Fifty-eight 1-year biopsies from 58 patients who underwent kidney transplantation at our hospital from January 2016 to December 2017 were included. MNP was counted in each specimen, and the specimens were divided into two groups by the median value. The differences in clinical and pathological characteristics were compared. Ki67-positive cells were counted among tubular epithelial cells to explore the association between cell cycle and MNP. In an additional cohort, MNP was compared between biopsies after precedent T-cell-mediated rejection and precedent medullary ray injury.Results: The 58 cases were divided into two groups by the median total amount of MNP: Group A (MNP ≥3) and Group B (MNP

  • Current status and perspectives on recurrent IgA nephropathy after kidney
           transplantation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: IgA nephropathy (IgAN) is the most common form of glomerulonephritis worldwide. IgAN progresses to end-stage kidney disease in 20-40% of patients within 20 years of diagnosis. Kidney transplantation is the most effective option for patients with end-stage kidney disease caused by IgAN, but recurrence can occur in the transplanted kidney. The IgAN recurrence rate varies from 1% to 10% per year, and varies according to the follow-up period, diagnostic modality, and biopsy criteria. Of note, studies based on protocol biopsies have reported a higher incidence of recurrence, which also occurred earlier after transplantation. In addition, recent data show that recurrence of IgAN is a more significant cause of allograft failure than previously believed. Little is known about the pathophysiology of IgAN recurrence, but several potential biomarkers have been investigated. Among them, galactose-deficient IgA1 (Gd-IgA1), IgG anti-Gd-IgA1 antibodies, and soluble CD89 could play a pivotal role in disease activity. This review aims to describe the current status of recurrent IgAN, including the incidence, clinical characteristics, risk factors, and future perspectives, with a focus on the available therapeutic approaches.

  • A case of kidney transplantation from a deceased donor with acute kidney
           injury due to rhabdomyolysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Acute kidney injury (AKI) due to rhabdomyolysis occurs because of renal ischemia or acute tubular necrosis due to the deposition of myoglobin casts in the renal tubules. Donors with AKI due to rhabdomyolysis are not contraindication for transplantation. However, the dark red kidney raises concerns about renal hypofunction or primary nonfunction after transplantation.We report the case of a 34-year-old man with a 15-year history of hemodialysis for chronic renal failure due to congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract. The patient received a renal allograft from a young woman who suffered cardiac death. The serum creatinine (sCre) level of the donor at the time of transport was 0.6 mg/dL, and renal ultrasonography revealed no abnormalities in renal morphology or blood flow. Her serum creatine kinase level increased to 57,000 IU/L 58 h after femoral artery cannulation, and sCre level worsened to 1.4 mg/dL, suggesting AKI due to rhabdomyolysis. However, since the urine output of the donor was maintained, the sCre elevation was thought to be nonproblematic. The allograft had a dark red appearance at the time of procurement. The perfusion of the isolated kidney was good, but the dark red color did not improve. A 0-h biopsy showed flattening of the renal tubular epithelium and absence of the brush border and myoglobin casts in 30% of the renal tubules. Rhabdomyolysis-related tubular damage was diagnosed. Hemodialysis was discontinued on postoperative day 14. Twenty-four days after the operation, the transplanted kidney function progressed favorably (sCre 1.18 mg/dL), and the patient was discharged. Protocol biopsy 1 month after transplantation showed disappearance of myoglobin casts and improvement in renal tubular epithelial damage. The patient’s sCre level was approximately 1.0 mg/dL 24 months after transplantation, and he is doing well without complications.

  • A case of hypokalemia caused by left native renal artery stenosis in a
           kidney transplant recipient

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A 39-year-old woman with end-stage renal failure of unknown origin was on peritoneal dialysis for 10 years. One year ago, she underwent ABO-incompatible living-donor kidney transplantation from her husband. After the kidney transplantation, her serum creatinine level remained around 0.7 mg/dL, but her serum potassium level remained low at around 3.5 mEq/L despite potassium supplementation and spironolactone. The patient’s plasma renin activity (PRA) and plasma aldosterone concentration (PAC) were markedly elevated (20 ng/mL/h and 868 pg/mL, respectively). A CT angiogram of the abdomen performed one year previously suggested stenosis of the left native renal artery, which was considered responsible for the hypokalemia. Renal venous sampling was done on both native kidneys and the transplanted kidney. Since renin secretion from the left native kidney was significantly elevated, a laparoscopic left nephrectomy was performed. Postoperatively, the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system was markedly improved (PRA: 6.4 ng/mL/h, PAC: 147.3 pg/mL), and the serum potassium levels also improved. Pathological examination of the removed kidney showed many atubular glomeruli and hyperplasia of the juxtaglomerular apparatus (JGA) in residual glomeruli. In addition, renin staining showed strong positivity in the JGA of these glomeruli. Here, we report a case of hypokalemia caused by left native renal artery stenosis in a kidney transplant recipient. This valuable case study provides histological confirmation of maintained renin secretion in an abandoned native kidney after kidney transplantation.

  • Challenges Posed by the Banff Classification: Diagnosis and Treatment of
           Chronic active T-cell mediated Rejection

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The three primary sites of acute T-cell mediated rejection (TCMR) in transplanted kidneys are the tubular epithelial cells, interstitum, and the vascular endothelial cells. The pathology of acute lesions is characterized by inflammatory cell infiltration; the final diagnosis suggested by the Banff 2019 classification is guided by grading of tubulitis (the t-score), interstitial inflammation (the i score), and endarteritis (the v score). Consistent major issues when using the Banff classification are the etiological classifications of interstitial fibrosis and tubular atrophy (IFTA). From 2015 to 2019, technological advances (i.e., genetic analysis in paraffin sections), increased our understanding of IFTA status in patients with smoldering acute TCMR and the roles played by inflammatory cell infiltration (the i-IFTA score) and tubulitis (the t-IFTA score) in IFTA. These two scores were introduced when establishing the diagnostic criteria for chronic active TCMR. Despite the increase in complexity and the lack of a consensus treatment for chronic active TCMR, the Banff classification may evolve as new techniques (i.e., genetic analysis in paraffin sections and deep learning of renal pathology), are introduced. The Banff conference proceeded as follows. First, lesions were defined. Next, working groups were established to better understand the lesions and to derive better classification methods. Finally, the new Banff classification was developed. This approach will continue to evolve; the Banff classification will become a very useful diagnostic standard. This paper overviews the history of TCMR diagnosis using the Banff classification, and the clinical importance, treatment, and prospects for acute and chronic active TCMR.

  • Bartter Syndrome-Related Variants Distribution: Brazilian Data and Its
           Comparison with Worldwide Cohorts

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Background: Genetic testing is recommended for accurate diagnosis of Bartter syndrome (BS) and serves as a basis for implementing specific target therapies. However, populations other than Europeans and North Americans are underrepresented in most databases and there are uncertainties in the genotype-phenotype correlation. We studied Brazilian BS patients, an admixed population with diverse ancestry. Methods: We evaluated the clinical and mutational profile of this cohort and performed a systematic review of BS mutations from worldwide cohorts. Results: Twenty-two patients were included; Gitelman syndrome was diagnosed in 2 siblings with antenatal BS and congenital chloride diarrhea in 1 girl. BS was confirmed in 19 patients: BS type 1 in 1 boy (antenatal BS); BS type 4a in 1 girl and BS type 4b in 1 girl, both of them with antenatal BS and neurosensorial deafness; BS type 3 (CLCNKB mutations): 16 cases. The deletion of the entire CLCNKB (1–20 del) was the most frequent variant. Patients carrying the 1–20 del presented earlier manifestations than those with other CLCNKB-mutations and the presence of homozygous 1–20 del was correlated with progressive chronic kidney disease. The prevalence of the 1–20 del in this BS Brazilian cohort was similar to that of Chinese cohorts and individuals of African and Middle Eastern descent from other cohorts. Conclusion: This study expands the genetic spectrum of BS patients with different ethnics, reveals some genotype/phenotype correlations, compares the findings with other cohorts, and provides a systematic review of the literature on the distribution of BS-related variants worldwide.
