as an indicator of avian polyomavirus infection in Psittaciformes.
A novel in vivo lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT)deficient mouse expressing predominantly LpX is associated with spontaneous glomerulopathy
Course of glomerular filtration rate in albuminuric type2 diabetic patients with or without diabetic glomerulopathy
Hyaline arteriolosclerosis is more pronounced in patients with diabetes than it is in patients with any other disease, except those associated with chronic transplant glomerulopathy
Seven adult Japanese rock ptarmigan (Lagopus mutus) that died on a rearing farm and appeared to have suffered from glomerulopathy
with renal tubular oxalosis were examined pathologically.
alpha]1M dominated in comparison with albumin, so that the renal function of these patients was rated as restricted tubulo-interstitial reabsorption (one patient with glomerulopathy
and restricted tubulo-interstitial reabsorption).
Other less common findings include uveitis, aseptic meningitis and encephalitis, seizures, cerebrovascular ischemia, pulmonary fibrosis, myocarditis, interstitial nephritis, collapsing glomerulopathy
, isolated renal and liver failure as well as multiple organ failure.
The most common diagnosis was diabetic nephropathy (n = 59; 33%) followed by primary and secondary forms of focal segmental glomerular sclerosis (n = 37; 21%), hypertensive and atherosclerotic renal disease (n = 30; 17%), membranous nephropathy (n = 19; 11%), primary chronic tubulointerstitial nephritis (n = 7; 4%), amyloidosis/monoclonal immunoglobulin deposition disease (n = 7; 4%), thin basement membrane nephropathy/Alport syndrome (n = 6; 3%), minimal change disease superimposed on nephrosclerosis (n = 4; 2%), fibrillary glomerulonephritis (n = 3; 2%), inactive membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis or idiopathic nodular glomerular sclerosis (n = 3; 2%), inactive lupus nephritis (n = 1; 1%), and fibronectin glomerulopathy
(n = 1; 1%).
The diagnoses of the patients included segmental glomerular sclerosis, membranous glomerulopathy
, membranous lupus nephritis, necrosis, membranous nephropathy, interstitial fibrosis, and sclerosis of glomeruli.
