[The unusual couple: a clinical case of coexistence between aHUS and Fabry's disease].

G Ital Nefrol 2019 Feb;36(1)

Professore Ordinario di Nefrologia, Università degli Studi della Campania, Luigi Vanvitelli.

Atypical hemolytic-uremic syndrome (aHUS) is a rare, potentially lethal (1-4) systemic disorder, capable of affecting both adults and children, causing thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) (5) that leads to the formation of thrombus within small blood vessels with multiple organ failure. The pathogenesis of the aHUS is part of a sort of chronic and uncontrolled activation of the complement system by genetic mutation of some proteins usually responsible for its self-regulation (6,7). Today, the rapid diagnosis of the disease and the timely start of treatment with eculizumab, improve outcomes of renal failure, stroke and heart attack (8-10). Read More

G Ital Nefrol 2019 Feb;36(1)

UO Nefrologia e Dialisi, Policlinico Germaneto, Catanzaro.

Biliary hamartomas (BH) are rare benign lesions of the liver characterized by a dilation of a variable number of small biliary ducts, usually surrounded by abundant fibrotic tissue. These malformations are due to an aberrant remodelling of the ductal plate, that is the embryonic structure generating the normal biliary tree. BH are usually asymptomatic, but in rare cases they can be associated with jaundice, heartburn and fever. Read More

[A child with severe growth delay and renal cysts].

G Ital Nefrol 2019 Feb;36(1)

UO Genetica Medica, Ospedale Meyer Firenze.

We describe the case of a 5-year-old who came to our attention for a growth delay. Among the investigations planned because of the child's short stature, we performed an abdominal ultrasound showing normal-sized kidneys with signs of cortico-medullar de-differentiation, diffuse medullary hyperechogenicity with reduction of cortical thickness and cortical-medullary cysts. The ultrasound findings, also confirmed in MRI, led us to suspect a genetically determined cystic nephropathy of the nephronophthisis or medullary cystic disease type. Read More

[Talking about medicine through mass media].

G Ital Nefrol 2019 Feb;36(1)

Sezione Medicina Legale, Dipartimento Medicina Sperimentale "L. Vanvitelli", Università della Campania, Napoli.

The ability to communicate is central to all professional activities and therefore being able to communicate effectively with mass media is essential. The medical doctor often needs to communicate not with a single patient or with a group of family members, but with "an important number of patients" through a microphone, a newspaper, a radio or a television. In this case it is not necessary to provide specific information on a single clinical case, but to provide simple, general information on a single pathology or a group of diseases to an interviewer or journalist, who will probably elaborate it at his own discretion making it usable to a diverse and unspecified audience.

Antiphospholipase 2 receptor antibody levels to predict complete spontaneous remission in primary membranous nephropathy.

Clin Kidney J 2019 Feb 9;12(1):36-41. Epub 2018 Mar 9.

Servicio de Nefrología y Trasplante Renal, Hospital Clínic, Departamento de Medicina, Universidad de Barcelona, Institut d' Invesigacions biomèdiques Agust Pi i Sunyer (IDIBAPS), Barcelona, Spain.

Background: M-type phospholipase A2 receptor (APLA2R) is considered the major antigen involved in the pathogenesis of adult primary membranous nephropathy (MN), which is the leading cause of non-diabetic nephrotic syndrome. Antibodies to this antigen have been proved to be an excellent biomarker of disease activity in primary MN. In fact, preliminary data suggest that the higher the antibody level the more proteinuria, and that a decrease in antibody level precedes the remission of proteinuria, but more solid evidence is needed.

Effects of parathyroidectomy on the biology of bone tissue in patients with chronic kidney disease and secondary hyperparathyroidism.

Bone 2019 Feb 6;121:277-283. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

LIM 16 - Laboratorio de Fisiopatologia Renal, Hospital das Clinicas HCFMUSP, Faculdade de Medicina, Universidade de Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil; Hospital Samaritano Americas Serviços Medicos, Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil. Electronic address:

Secondary hyperparathyroidism is a complication of chronic kidney disease that compromises skeletal integrity. In patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism undergoing parathyroidectomy, parathyroid hormone levels dramatically decrease. The effects of parathyroidectomy on bone tissue are poorly understood, especially regarding the proteins expressed by osteocytes, such as fibroblast growth factor 23, dentin matrix protein 1, matrix extracellular phosphoglycoprotein, sclerostin, receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa B ligand (RANKL) and osteoprotegerin, which regulate bone turnover.

Departamento de Nefrología, Instituto Nacional de Cardiología Ignacio Chávez, CDMX, México.

Diet composition has long been known to influence acid-base balance by providing acid or base precursors. In general, foods rich in protein, such as meat, cheese, eggs, and others, increase the production of acid in the body, whereas fruit and vegetables increase alkalis. The capacity of acid or base production of any food is called potential renal acid load (PRAL). Read More

The considerable variability in its clinical expression, the difficulties in diagnosing the condition and the current availability of several alternatives for its treatment represent a considerable challenge that justifies the development of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines that can help health professionals in the decision-making process for managing these patients. To develop these guidelines, we conducted a systematic search of the main reference databases using strategies adapted to each of the 32 clinical questions considered. Read More

Prospective randomised multicentre study to demonstrate the benefits of haemodialysis without acetate (with citrate): ABC-treat Study. Acute effect of citrate.

Nefrologia 2019 Jan 24. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Hospital Universitario Infanta Sofía, Madrid, España.

Introduction: Dialysis fluid (DF), an essential element in hemodialysis (HD), is manufactured in situ by mixing three components: treated water, bicarbonate concentrate and acid concentrate. To avoid the precipitation of calcium and magnesium carbonate that is produced in DF by the addition of bicarbonate, it is necessary to add an acid. There are 2 acid concentrates that contain acetate (ADF) or citrate (CDF) as a stabilizer. Read More
