Name
Nephrotic syndrome and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis
Description
Congenital nephrotic syndrome (NS) and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) form a spectrum of podocyte diseases. Nephrotic syndrome is characterized by heavy proteinuria (more than 3.5 grams per day), hypoalbuminemia, and edema, and divided into steroid-sensitive and steroid-resistant forms. Affected patients develop FSGS and progress to end-stage renal disease. FSGS is defined as a sclerosing lesion in glomerular capillaries.
