Internist (Berl) 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Universitätsklinik für Nephrologie und Hypertonie, Inselspital, Universitätsspital Bern, Universität Bern, 3010, Bern, Schweiz.

Kidney diseases are among the most frequently reported diseases with a poor prognosis that are diagnosed too late. According to current Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) guidelines, diagnosis and risk stratification are mainly based on functional markers (creatinine and cystatin C), which are used to determine the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and the analysis of urinary albumin excretion as a marker of kidney damage. These methods have limitations that can complicate the interpretation of the results and can lead to a delay of the diagnosis as well as to a misinterpretation of the prognosis. Read More

[Immunoglobulin A nephropathy].

Internist (Berl) 2019 Mar 20. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Medizinische Klinik II (Klinik für Nieren- und Hochdruckkrankheiten, rheumatologische und immunologische Erkrankungen), Universitätsklinikum, RWTH Aachen, Pauwelsstr. 30, 52074, Aachen, Deutschland.

Immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN) is the most prevalent primary form of glomerulopathy in the western world. The pathogenetic relevance of autoimmune mechanisms, genetics and environmental or nutritional factors is not fully established. The majority of IgAN patients present with mild symptoms; however, the exact prognosis of the individual IgAN course is often difficult to predict. Read More

[Rare inflammatory diseases of the esophagus].

Zentrum für Innere Medizin II, Hochschulklinikum Brandenburg, Medizinische Hochschule Brandenburg, Hochstr. 29, 14770, Brandenburg an der Havel, Deutschland.

Because of its high incidence gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is at the forefront of medical attention. On the other hand, vigilance for rare inflammatory diseases of the esophagus, such as herpes esophagitis, radiation-induced esophagitis, eosinophilic esophagitis, pseudodiverticulosis and Crohn's disease is low. Moreover, these entities are rarely distinguishable from GERD by clinical features alone. Read More

[Chronic fibrosing lung diseases : Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis from the perspective of its differential diagnosis].

Internist (Berl) 2019 Apr;60(4):345-361

Abteilung für Innere Medizin, Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen, Gießen, Deutschland.

Fibrosing lung diseases describe a heterogeneous group of interstitial lung diseases (ILD) of highly variable etiology, but with a unifying terminal process of irreversible, fibroproliterative destruction of the alveolar surface, loss of compliance and progressive impairment of gas exchange. In view of the heterogeneity, the disastrous prognoses in some cases and the treatment consequences, a thorough differential diagnosis is essential in all patients. Antifibrotic therapies are currently only indicated in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Read More

[Minimal change disease and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis].

Internist (Berl) 2019 Mar 18. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

Medizinische Klinik IV, Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Ulmenweg 18, 91054, Erlangen, Deutschland.

Minimal change disease (MCD) or minimal change glomerulonephritis and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) are the two major causes of nephrotic syndrome in children and young adults. Both disease entities resemble each other and can sometimes only be discriminated on the basis of their clinical courses. MCD and FSGS display two classical examples that share a common pathophysiology in which the glomerular podocyte and the cytoskeleton of its foot processes play important roles. Read More

[Rapid progressive glomerulonephritis].

Authors:
Marion Haubitz

Internist (Berl) 2019 Mar 13. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Medizinische Klinik III - Nieren- und Hochdruckerkrankungen, Klinikum Fulda gAG, Universitätsmedizin Marburg - Campus Fulda, Pacelliallee 4, 36043, Fulda, Deutschland.

The rapid progressive glomerulonephritis is an emergency case. Renal function is rapidly lost within weeks or a few months (rarely within days) due to necrotizing extracapillary proliferative crescentic glomerulonephritis. Early diagnosis and treatment improve prognosis, as the best prognostic marker is creatinine when treatment is initiated. Read More

[Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis and C3 glomerulopathy].

Internist (Berl) 2019 Mar 11. Epub 2019 Mar 11.

Klinik für Nieren- und Hochdruckerkrankungen, Medizinische Hochschule Hannover, Hannover, Deutschland.

Based on an increasingly better pathophysiological understanding over the last 10 years, in 2010 a new classification of glomerulonephritis with dominant or codominant C3 deposits was introduced and the predominant subgoup was termed C3 glomerulopathy (C3G). In the current classification, immune complex mediated membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (IC-MPGN) and C3 glomerulopathy (C3G) form a disease spectrum which is very heterogeneous in terms of pathophysiology and the clinical course. Recent evidence suggests that IC-MPGN and C3G share more pathophysiological aspects with respect to secondary causes, autoantibodies and genetic aspects than had been suggested with the creation of the new classification.

[Kinase inhibitors in oncology : What is new?]

Internist (Berl) 2019 Mar 11. Epub 2019 Mar 11.

Medizinische Klinik III für Hämatologie und internistische Onkologie, Klinikum rechts der Isar, Technische Universität München, Ismaningerstr. 22, 81675, München, Deutschland.

Kinase inhibitors are now among the most important drugs in targeted therapy and are used in particular for the treatment of different tumor entities. Since many kinase inhibitors inhibit various tyrosine kinases efficiently but not specifically, they are often characterized by their versatile use in a wide variety of entities and diseases. The diverse use of this group of drugs, as well as the challenge of their side-effect profile, continues to make kinase inhibitors the subject of numerous clinical studies. Read More

Zentrum für Innere Medizin, lll. Medizinische Klinik, Universitätsklinikum Hamburg-Eppendorf, Martinistr. 52, 20246, Hamburg, Deutschland.

Background: Membranous glomerulonephritis (MGN) is the most frequent cause of a nephrotic syndrome in adults. It is an autoimmune disease caused by binding of autoantibodies to endogenous proteins expressed on glomerular podocytes. Antibody binding and activation of inflammatory mediators result in the onset of proteinuria. Read More

Medizinische Klinik III (Nephrologie, Hypertensiologie, Rheumatologie), Sana Klinikum Offenbach GmbH, KfH-Nierenzentrum Offenbach, Starkenburgring 66-70, 63069, Offenbach, Deutschland.

Lupus nephritis (LN) is the most frequent and one of the most severe organ manifestations of systemic lupus erythematosus. The central pathogenetic mechanism is characterized by the loss of immune tolerance against autoantigens of the cell nucleus, which can lead to renal inflammation via the formation of nuclear autoantibodies. The clinical manifestations of LN encompass nephritic syndrome with the special form of rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis, nephrotic syndrome and thrombotic microangiopathy. Read More

Internist (Berl) 2019 Mar;60(3):257-272

Medizinische Klinik und Poliklinik I, Universitätsklinikum TU Dresden, Fetscherstr. 74, 01307, Dresden, Deutschland.

In April 2018, an updated version of the previously published guidelines on acute myeloid leukemia (AML) from 2010 and 2017 was released. A revision was necessary because of two positive aspects: First, new data and insights on risk stratification and monitoring, and second, the clinical development and approval of new agents. The modified genetic risk classification allows a more precise distinction of different diagnostic groups and consequently a better matched post-remission treatment. Read More

Klinik für Nieren- und Hochdruckerkrankungen, Medizinische Hochschule Hannover, Carl-Neuberg-Str. 1, 30625, Hannover, Deutschland.

Primary aldosteronism (PA) is a frequent cause of resistant hypertension. The clinical presentation is heterogeneous, but a suppressed or low normal renin (especially with ACE inhibitors or sartans) should raise suspicion for primary aldosteronism, even when aldosterone levels are in the normal range. Diagnosis of unilateral hormone production from an adrenal adenoma (Conn syndrome), which is curable by surgery, requires adrenal vein sampling, which should be performed in experienced centers.
