BACKGROUND AND AIM: Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 infection and more prone to develop severe disease. It is important to know predictors of poor outcomes to optimize the strategies of care. METHODS: 93 patients with CKD and 93 age-sex matched patients without CKD were included in the study. Data on demographic, clinical features, hematological indices and outcomes were noted and compared between the groups. Neutrophile to lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platele...

Aim null The prevalence of kidney disease and the number of renal biopsies performed in the elderly are increasing with aging of the population. We aimed to analyze the clinicopathological findings of kidney diseases in the elderly (≥ 65 years), in comparison with their younger counterparts (aged 16 - 64 years). null Materials and methods null The data at the time of renal biopsy were obtained by reviewing medical records and the biopsy reports of the patients retrospectively. The data at the ti...

Objective: It’s recommended to use equations such as Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) and Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) by using creatinine level in estimating glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Here, we aimed to compare serum cystatin-C (Cys-C) and Cys-C based equations with creatinine and creatinine based equations in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and nephrotic syndrome (NS). Method: A total of 142 patients with CKD (30 with NS and 112 with...

OBJECTIVE: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) causes a wide spectrum of symptoms, from asymptomatic conditions to severe inflammatory response. Hemodialysis (HD) patients have a higher risk for developing severe COVID-19 because of older age, multiple co-morbid conditions, and impaired immune system compared to the general population. As little is known about these special groups, we evaluated the clinical characteristics and outcomes of HD patients with COVID-19. METHODS: All hospitalized HD p...

Intravesical instillation of Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) immunotherapy remains the most effective adjuvant treatment for noninvasive bladder cancer. Systemic BCG-related complications are rare and usually related to infective agent or an immune-mediated reaction. We discussed a case with perinuclear antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (p-ANCA) vasculitis, developing after instillation of BCG for non-invasive bladder cancer. A 68-year-old man presented with nephritic syndrome a few months af...

Introduction: Carbamazepine (CBZ) is a drug used in the treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders. Intoxication with CBZ is a serious condition that can result in coma, hemodynamic instability and death. Urgent management of CBZ intoxication is life saving and extracorporeal methods are used for removal of CBZ. It is also known that CBZ is highly protein-bound and charcoal hemoperfusion is the most effective extracorporeal elimination. We know that hemodialysis is also a technique for ...

: Leptospirosis is a zoonotic disease that occurs worldwide. Various clinical manifestations of leptospirosis can be seen. In this article, we present a case with acute renal failure, severe vasculitis and hyperbilirubinemia occurring simultaneously with leptospirosis. A 45-year-old male patient presented with fever, myalgia, jaundice and reddish skin lesions and anuria. Physical examination findings were icteric sclera, large tender hepatomegaly, and lower extremities' cutaneous necrosis due to...
