The article presents information on several abstracts of several papers presented in the Société de Néphrologie held in Paris-La Villette, France from October 19-20, 1989. One of the papers "Pachydermoperiostosis With Proteinuria: A New Cause of Glomerular Hyperfiltration (GHF)?" stated that pachydermoperiostosis is a rare and often inherited disease characterized by cutaneous hypertrophy of the face and the limb extremities associated with periostitis of the distal bones. Another paper, "Renal Biopsy in the Elderly," reviewed the renal biopsy findings of 314 patients who presented with renal disease after the age of 65 years, between 1968 and 1988.
