Pathogenesis of Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis. Sometimes in children it is secondary to an infectious process, for example hepatitis B, or related to some systemic disease, like something called lupus erythematosus.

The primary form idiopathic is that in that we do not know, although exist diverse hypotheses, the etiology. In many cases NS dyslipidemia and hypoalbuminemia. The mode of inheritance and age of onset are different according to the gene involved. This protein crosslinks bundles of actin filaments and is present in the podocyte.

There is the endothelial cell, which at real high magnification actually has holes in it, fenestrations in it, so it is not much of a barrier. We screened family members for NPHS2 mutations. Cyclophosphamide in the treatment of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis.

Several circulating factors affecting podocyte permeability barrier have been proposed, but not proven to cause FSGS.

Some investigators have focused their attention on the mitochondria. Nevertheless, in FSGS some of the segmental lesions are not sclerosis, but hyaline deposits: Although there is considerable controversy with respect to the meaning and definition of these variants, the classification tries to define concepts than allow a same language among all the nephropathologists and nephrologists of the world.


That contributes to segmentari development of edema in the legs, in the abdomen, around the eyes and elsewhere in patients with the nephrotic syndrome. Only a minority three of eight of patients in our series of adult patients with FSGS showed a positive influence of rituximab.

Attempts to identify pathogenic mechanisms in CG have raised a number of hypotheses; t, the mechanisms through which these disorders lead to diffuse podocyte injury are poorly understood. You can have mesangial proliferation, as we will discuss. The New York Times. Plasmin and plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 promote cellular motility by regulating the interaction between the urokinase receptor and vitronectin.

En algunos reportes hubo respuesta favorable a los esteroides. There are morphologic variants of FSGS and for the histopathologic zegmentaria it is important to recognize them. In this variant there are segmental sclerosing lesions that can compromise any part of tuft, but, by definition, this category requires that all other categories rsclerosis, cellular, tip, and collapsing be excluded.

FSGS in a patient with sickle cell anemia. The cells occasionally manifest apoptosis, producing pyknotic or karyorrhectic debris.

Sobre el proyecto SlidePlayer Condiciones de uso. So of those millions of glomeruli you’ve got, only some have this lesion.

These syndromes are platelet disorders that are characterized by thrombocytopenia and leukocyte inclusions, with Fechtner and Epstein syndromes resulting in nephritis to varying degrees.

In addition, if there are lesions in perihilar segments the tip variant is excluded, having in consideration the peripheral nature of the lesions in the tip variant.


What it means is, that during the daytime when an individual is in the upright position and the urine is collected, we find abnormal amounts foocal albumin in the urine.

Although oncologic treatment regimens included vincristine for four patients, doxorubicin for five patients, cisplatin for two patients, and total-body irradiation for one patient, the only agent common to all patients was pamidronate Aredia. Recent evidence that hypoxia-inducible factor upregulation in podocytes leads to their proliferation and dedifferentiation in HIV associated nephropathy is striking.

High-dose cyclosporine therapy in recurrent nephrotic syndrome following renal transplantation. And it also gives you an idea that these patients are not going to do as well as, in fact, the minimal change disease type. Patients began therapy with pamidronate at or below the recommended dose of 90 mg, intravenously, monthly, which was increased to mg monthly in two patients and mg monthly in three patients. Light micrograph of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, hilar variant.

Focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis: Even so, much remains to know and it is sure that we will know new findings and theories on the etiology and pathogenesis of FSGS in the next years, but in brief: Proteinuria tends to be nonselective and in many cases it is massive: Hemodynamic factors have also been implicated.
