After taking an informed consent from the patients and approval from ethical committee of the hospital, the following patients with; nephrotic syndrome, nephritic
syndrome, acute renal failure of unknown cause and significant non-nephrotic range proteinuria (proteinuria >1gm/24hrs) with or without renal failure were included.

Hypocompiementaemia of poststreptococcal acute glomerulonephritis is associated with C3 nephritic
factor (C3NeF) IgG autoantibody activity.
More importantly, there is no consensus on a biochemical parameter considered to show systemic inflammatory response clearly and as correctly as in nephritic
dysfunction, diabetes, and atherosclerosis.
Levels are also influenced by low albumin levels, as seen in patients with protein-losing enteropathy, nephritic
syndrome, or liver failure.
DFX, as recommendations indicate, was not commenced in patients with an ALT>300 IU/L, serum creatinine above the upper limit of normal (ULN), significant proteinuria or a history of nephritic
This edition has three new cases and updated and new sections on health maintenance, nephritic

syndrome or kidney disease with dialysis, bone-marrow or organ transplant, diseases associated with treatment with immunosuppressive drugs or radiation therapy, including malignant neoplasms, leukemia, lymphoma, and Hodgkin disease (3,4).
34] Abnormalities in several podocyte proteins have been demonstrated to cause proteinuric renal diseases in humans, for example: absence of nephrin in Finnish congenital nephritic
syndrome; CD2-adaptor protein and podocin in forms of steroid resistant nephritic
