Micronuclei and other nuclear anomalies in buccal epithelial cells of children with chronic kidney disease
The objective of this study was to reveal the likely genomic instability in children with chronic kidney disease (CKD) using micronucleus (MN) assay on buccal epithelial cells (BEC). We investigated the frequencies of ...
Long-Term Outcome of Steroid-Resistant Nephrotic Syndrome in Children
We investigated the value of genetic, histopathologic, and early treatment response information in prognosing long-term renal outcome in children with primary steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome. From the PodoNet Registry, ...
Parvovirus B19-induced acute bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome in twin girls
We describe 2 cases of 6-year-old twin girls presenting with acute carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) associated with human parvovirus B19 (HPV-B19) infection, as evidenced by serological data and detection of HPV-B19 DNA in ...
Abnormal circadian blood pressure regulation in children with nocturnal enuresis
Introduction: To investigate autonomic nervous system function in enuretic children by performing ambulatory blood pressure monitor (ABPM) for 24h. Methods: Twenty-eight children ranging in age from 6 to 15 years with ...
Can We Differentiate Pyelonephritis and Cystitis without 99mTc-Dimercaptosuccinic Acid Scan in Children?
Purpose: Urinary tract infection is one of the most common infections in childhood. Because of the long term sequelae, differentiation of pyelonephritis from cystitis is important. The aim of this study is to determine the ...
Serum indoxyl sulfate concentrations associate with progression of chronic kidney disease in children
The uremic toxins indoxyl sulfate (IS) and p-cresyl sulfate (pCS) accumulate in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) as a consequence of altered gut microbiota metabolism and a decline in renal excretion. Despite of ...
