Case Study
A case study of a 60-year-old Caucasian men with lower back pain, fatigue, weight loss, and oliguric acute renal failure, requiring hemodialysis is presented. The patient was treated with two doses of Velcade, remained dialysis-dependent and had a cardiac arrest. This is only the second reported case of extramedullary hematopoiesis in the kidney in the setting of multiple myeloma.

    A possible association between end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and apolipoprotein E (APOE) polymorphism was found in some but not all studies. We have analyzed the APOE genotypes in 995 hemodialyzed patients (cases) and a sample of 6242 healthy individuals (controls) in the Czech Republic. There...
