Thirty nine non selected cases of Nephrotic Syndrome are studied. In all cases a renal biopsy and a transparietal renal phlebography (T.R.Ph.), were made in the left kidney. In some of these cases this technique was combined with a cavography by means of percutaneous catheterization of the femoral vein and a T.R.Ph. of the right kidney. Our results clearly demonstrate the relative frequency of the association between obstructions of the left renal vein and the nephrotic syndrome due to primary or secondary glomerular lesions. (Two cases of 20 with primary glomerular lesion and 6 cases of 19 with secondary lesions). On the other hand we have shown that only 2 cases had obstruction of the renal vein in group of 35 patients with lupus, diabetes, or myeloma without nephrotic syndrome.

    Renal disease is rare in children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis, although a number of associated nephropathies have been described, including mesangial glomerulonephritis. We report the presence of mesangial glomerulonephritis, revealed by a nephrotic syndrome, in a paediatric patient with...
