The median creatinine level for HIV-positive patients was 316 [micro]mol/L and the median protein-creatinine ratio (PCR) 0.61 g/mmol, which is in the nephrotic range
Number of Cases with Albuminuria Normal 1 Microalbuminuria 8 Macroalbuminuria 31 Nephrotic Range
12 Note: Table made from bar graph.
Subnephrotic-range proteinuria was seen in 8 patients, while 4 patients had a nephrotic range
proteinuria (Table 2).
 reported the development of nephrotic range
proteinuria in 8 SLE patients with no evidence of peripheral capillary immune complex deposition and called it glomerular podocytopathy.
Often, the proteinuria is in the nephrotic range
and is associated with vascular thrombosis and infections that can limit the survival of the recipient.
Blood in urine, proteinuria less than 3 gm/day, proteinuria of nephrotic range
, nephritic syndrome and acute kidney injury are the common presentations of GN but it may present with chronic kidney disease in some situations1-3.
From this sub-group of normal looking biopsies, 33.33% (n=9) were associated with nephrotic range
proteinuria and were thus labelled as minimal change disease (MCD).
We included patients who were >1 and <18 years of age at the onset of NS, met the clinical diagnosis of idiopathic NS (edema, nephrotic range
proteinuria, and hypoalbuminemia), resided in the Atlanta MSA at time of diagnosis and during the entire period of follow-up, and were diagnosed between 1/1/2006 and 1/1/2012.
A Caucasian son of unrelated parents was referred to our centre because of severe hypertension, nephrotic range
proteinuria, microhematuria, acute kidney injury, and signs of TMA.
A retrospective analysis of patients with 100 primary MN cases (after screening for clinical or laboratory signs of a secondary cause) revealed positivity in 53% of patients, with a higher prevalence observed in these subjects with nephrotic range
proteinuria (61% versus 43%) .
These patients may experience hematuria with or without red blood cell casts, nephrotic range
proteinuria, and/or elevated serum creatinine.
Evaluation for diabetes related complications revealed nephrotic range
proteinuria (3.2g/day) and bilateral proliferative diabetic retinopathy.
