Int J Environ Res Public Health 2019 Mar 4;16(5). Epub 2019 Mar 4.

Department of Clinical and Biological Sciences, University of Torino, 10124 Torino, Italy.

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) has been redefined in the new millennium as any alteration of kidney morphology, function, blood, or urine composition lasting for at least 3 months. This broad definition also encompasses diseases or conditions that are associated with normal kidney function, such as a kidney scarring from an acute pyelonephritis episode or a single kidney, as a result of kidney donation. CKD is a relevant public health problem. Read More

RostSMU of Minzdrav of Russia, Rostov on Don, Russia.

The generally accepted standard of antibiotic therapy aimed at causative agent does not exclude the risk of acute obstructive pyelonephritis (AOP) to become chronic after the end of antibiotic therapy, resulting in a high incidence of relapses. To assess the outcomes of the AOP, we undertook a prospective clinical trial. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study comprised 51 consistently selected patients (12 men and 39 women) with AOP occurred as a result of unilateral ureteric calculus obstruction. Read More

Department of Paediatric Urology, Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children, Northern Ireland.

Purpose: We instituted early clean intermittent catheterization (CIC) in 1997 for all newborn infants with spina bifida (SB). We compared this group to a historical group managed expectantly to see if early catheterization was associated with a reduction in renal scar rate as determined by DMSA scanning.

Methods: Data were studied retrospectively on all infants with SB over a recent 13-year period who were treated with early universal CIC in a regional pediatric urology department. Read More

Ultrasound and color Doppler applications in chronic kidney disease.

J Nephrol 2018 Dec 6;31(6):863-879. Epub 2018 Sep 6.

Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies, Department of Internal Medicine, University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy.

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) includes all clinical features and complications during the progression of various kidney conditions towards end-stage renal disease (ESRD). These conditions include immune and inflammatory disease such as: primary and hepatitis C virus (HCV)-related glomerulonephritis; infectious disease such as pyelonephritis with or without reflux and tuberculosis; vascular disease such as chronic ischemic nephropathy; hereditary and congenital disease such as polycystic disease and congenital cystic dysplasia; metabolic disease including diabetes and hyperuricemia; and systemic disease (collagen disease, vasculitis, myeloma). During the progression of CKD, ultrasound imaging and color Doppler imaging (US-CDI) can differentiate the etiology of the renal damage in only 50-70% of cases. Read More

Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease with Emphysematous Polycystic Renal Infection That Required Surgical Treatment.

Intern Med 2019 Jan 24;58(1):85-89. Epub 2018 Aug 24.

Department of Medicine, Kidney Center, Tokyo Women's Medical University, Japan.

We encountered a patient with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) complicated with emphysematous polycystic renal infection (EPRI). A 44-year-old woman visited our hospital for a fever, appetite loss, and gross hematuria. Because the patient was suffering from end-stage renal disease (ESRD), she was immediately hospitalized for hemodialysis. Read More

[Xanthogranulonatous pyelonephritis: report of 5 cases].

Beijing Da Xue Xue Bao Yi Xue Ban 2018 Aug;50(4):743-746

Department of diagnostic Ultrasound,d HospPeking University Thirital 100191, China.

Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XGP) is an unusual form of chronic pyelonephritis in which the renal parenchyma is destroyed and replaced by lipid-laden foamy macrophages. It usually affects middle-aged women with a history of recurrent urinary tract infection, diabetes, or kidney stones. The inflammatory process is usually diffuse and can extend beyond the kidney.

Urinothorax Caused by Xanthogranulomatous Pyelonephritis.

Case Rep Pulmonol 2018 14;2018:7976839. Epub 2018 Jun 14.

Department of Pulmonary Medicine, Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, Marshall University, Huntington, West Virginia 25701, USA.

Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis is a rare form of chronic pyelonephritis that generally afflicts middle-aged women with a history of recurrent urinary tract infections. Its pathogenesis generally involves calculus obstructive uropathy and its histopathology is characterized by replacement of the renal parenchyma with lipid filled macrophages. This often manifests as an enlarged, nonfunctioning kidney that may be complicated by abscess or fistula. Read More

Impact of social deprivation on length of stay for common infectious diseases in two French university-affiliated general pediatric departments.

Arch Pediatr 2018 Aug 21;25(6):359-364. Epub 2018 Jul 21.

Inserm, ECEVE, U1123, 10, boulevard de Verdun, 75010 Paris, France; Université Paris Diderot, Sorbonne Paris Cité, 10, boulevard de Verdun, 75010 Paris, France; URC Eco Île-de-France, DRCD, Assistance publique-Hôpitaux de Paris, Hôtel Dieu, 1, place du Parvis-de-Notre-Dame, 75004 Paris, France.

Background: Adult deprived patients consume more healthcare resources than others, particularly in terms of increased length of stay (LOS) and costs. Very few pediatric studies have focused on LOS, although the effect of deprivation could be greater in children due to the vulnerability of this population. Our objective was to compare LOS between deprived and nondeprived children hospitalized for acute infectious diseases in two university-affiliated pediatric departments located in a low-income area of northern Paris.

Immunohistochemical characteristics of renomedullary interstitial cell tumor: a study of 41 tumors with emphasis on differential diagnosis of mesenchymal neoplasms.

Hum Pathol 2018 Dec 18;82:46-50. Epub 2018 Jul 18.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Henry Ford Health System, Detroit, MI 48202, USA. Electronic address:

Renomedullary interstitial cell tumors (RMICTs) are almost always incidentally identified either at autopsy or upon resection of the kidney for other reasons. However, rare cases that are large, resulting in a clinical mass, have been reported. The immunohistochemical phenotype of usual, incidental RMICT using modern soft tissue tumor markers is largely unknown, however, providing little information to aid in classification of larger or atypical tumors.

Pyeloduodenal Fistula in Xanthogranulomatous Pyelonephritis: A Series of Two Cases.

Perm J 2018 ;22:17-150

Surgeon in the Division of Transplant Surgery and the Division of Acute Care Surgery and Trauma at Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, FL.

Xanthogranulomatous inflammation, characterized by destruction and replacement of tissues with chronic inflammatory cells, including foamy histiocytes and hemosiderin-laden macrophages, is uncommon. In patients with xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis, inflammation may extend from the kidney to the overlying duodenum, creating a pyeloduodenal fistula that further complicates medical and surgical management. We present two cases with recurrent kidney infections who each ultimately received a nephrectomy and repair of their duodenal fistula. Read More

Student Research Committee, Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, Tabriz, Iran.

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) comprises 2%-3% of all visceral and 80%-85% of all adult kidney malignancies. Nephrectomy is the treatment of choice for renal tumors. The accurate pathological evaluation of nonneoplastic renal parenchyma in nephrectomy specimens is important for subsequent management. Read More

Pathology Department, Hospital Universitario y Politécnico La Fe Pediatric Imaging Section, Avenida Fernando Abril Martorell 106, 46026, Valencia, Spain.

Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XPN) is an unusual and severe form of chronic inflammatory lesion of the kidney, characterised by the destruction of the renal parenchyma and the presence of multinucleated giant cells and lipid-laden macrophages, inflammatory infiltration and intensive renal fibrosis. There are a few cases in the literature which describe the disease in children. The pathomechanism of XPN is poorly understood. Read More
