    Increased knowledge of the biochemical composition of the glomerular basement membrane (GBM) and the introduction of molecular genetics has shed new light on the hereditary disorders of the GBM. In this review three disorders are highlighted. About 85% of the cases reported as Alport syndrome...

    If not aggressively treated, oral steroid-resistant (SRst) nephrotic focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is likely to progress to end-stage renal failure. Three observations challenge the conclusion of the International Study of Kidney Diseases in Children (ISKDC) that SRst FSGS is...

    We report the youngest patient with anti-glomerular basement membrane disease described in the literature to date. Age-dependent expression of the target antigen in this auto-immune disease explains the low incidence in young children. Despite adequate immunosuppression, renal function did not...
