Membranous nephropathy with rapid progression
We report a 49-year-old man with microscopic hematuria, subnephrotic proteinuria, and rapidly progressive renal failure. His biopsy had features of PhosphoLipase A2 Receptor (PLA2R) positive membranous nephropathy with circumferential cellular crescents. Further work-up revealed IgG antiGlomerular Basement Membrane (anti-GBM) antibody titer of 188 U/mL (normal <7 U/mL). A final diagnosis of membranous nephropathy with anti-GBM disease was made. These two distinct pathological entities can occur together resulting in significant morbidity and mortality unless diagnosed early and treatment initiated promptly. Outcomes ha...

Acute kidney injury with neurological features: Beware of the star fruit and its caramboxin
We present a case of a 51-year-old male with paresis and altered mental status. Screening for neurological diseases such as stroke, Guillain-Barre, meningitis and encephalitis were negative. In the evolution, he developed acute kidney failure and was submitted to 4 dialysis sessions. After talking to the family, we discovered he had ingested over 50 star fruits prior to the acute neurologic deficits. He recovered renal function so a renal biopsy was not required. Physicians should actively look for star fruit ingestion history in patients presenting with unexplained acute kidney injury with or without neurological features...

Successful treatment of anti-factor H antibody-associated atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome
Tomoo Kise, Shigeru Fukuyama, Masatsugu UeharaIndian Journal of Nephrology 2020 30(1):35-38 Anti-complement factor H (CFH) autoantibody (Ab)-associated atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) has a poor prognosis in terms of frequent relapses. Although eculizumab is an effective treatment for this type of aHUS, the method of eculizumab discontinuation is not yet established. Herein, we report a case of anti-CFH Ab-associated aHUS in a 6-year-old boy. Eculizumab induction therapy following plasma exchange improved his condition. After 14 months, eculizumab was discontinued because of meningococcal bacteremia. After 6 mon...

Chylothorax in a child with nephrotic syndrome
We present a case of an 8-year-old boy with nephrotic syndrome who presented with prolonged respiratory difficulty and dry cough. A detailed evaluation revealed left chylothorax secondary to thrombosis of the left brachiocephalic vein. He improved with conservative management including anticoagulation therapy, intercostal chest tube drainage, and dietary modification. This case highlights the need to consider venous thrombosis as a cause of chylothorax in patients with nephrotic syndrome to institute appropriate treatment. (Source: Indian Journal of Nephrology)
