BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Pregnancy-associated hemolytic uremic syndrome (P-aHUS) is an important cause of peripartum acute kidney injury). Studies from Europe have described mutations in complement regulator genes, while the data in Indian P-aHUS patients is scarce. METHODS We present 17 patients of P-aHUS who were investigated for complement protein levels and genetic analysis with multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) for complement genes. Plasma exchange therapy was offered...

AIM Acute kidney injury (AKI) shows an increasing incidence, accounting for a remarkable proportion of nephrology team in-hospital activity. The aim was to describe main features and outcomes of AKI observed in patients admitted to a tertiary care hospital. METHODS We conducted a retrospective analysis in all consecutive AKI patients referred for nephrology consultation (November 2018-February 2020) focusing on the factors associated with in-hospital mortality within 90 days and kidney function ...

End stage renal disease (ESRD) is followed by disturbed adaptive immunity, together with alterations in T cell subsets, including CD4+CD25+FoxP3+ cells (Tregs). In the present study, we assessed the effect of haemodialysis (HD) on the Treg population. CD3+CD4+, CD3+CD8+ and CD4+CD25+FoxP3+ cells were estimated by flow cytometry in 142 ESRD patients (45 ESRD-preHD, 97 on HD) and 30 healthy controls (HC). Patients on HD were classified into three groups according to time on dialysis (HD vintage - ...

Background null The clinical syndrome of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB) peritoneal dialysis (PD) peritonitis is poorly understood. Whether local TB patterns modify the clinical syndrome, and what factors associate with poor outcomes is also unknown. null Methods null A scoping review identified published cases of TB PD peritonitis. Cases from low and high TB burden areas were compared, and cases that did or did not suffer a poor clinical outcome were compared. null Results null There were 216 c...

Aims null Rapidly progressive crescentic glomerulonephritis occurs in number systemic and primary glomerular diseases, including anti-glomerular basement membrane disease, anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody vasculitis and lupus nephritis. Our understanding of pathogenic mechanisms comes from animal models of disease such as the nephrotoxic nephritis model. The lectin pathway of complement activation has been shown to play a key role in several models of inflammation including renal ischaemia r...

Characterizing structural and tissue abnormalities of the kidney is fundamental to understanding kidney disease. Functional multi-parametric renal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a noninvasive imaging strategy whereby several sequences are employed within a single session to quantify renal perfusion, tissue oxygenation, fibrosis, inflammation, and oedema without using ionizing radiation. In this review, we discuss evidence surrounding its use in several clinical settings including acute kidn...
