Intracystic magnetic resonance imaging in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease: features of severe cyst infection in a case–control study

Background The purpose of this study was to investigate the usefulness of intracystic MRI features for detection of severe cyst infection that is usually refractory to antibiotic therapy alone in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. Methods Seventy-six patients (88 episodes) with positive cyst cultures treated from January 2006 to December 2013 were enrolled ...

CD1a + survivin + dendritic cell infiltration in dermal lesions of systemic sclerosis

Introduction Proto-oncogene survivin is a member of the inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP) family of proteins. The presence of serous antibodies against survivin in patients with systemic sclerosis has been previously reported; however, there are few reports regarding the pathophysiological relationship between survivin and systemic sclerosis. We herein investigated the expression and ...

Estimation of the number of histological diagnosis for IgG4-related kidney disease referred to the data obtained from the Japan Renal Biopsy Registry (J-RBR) questionnaire and cases reported in the Japanese Society of Nephrology Meetings

Background More than 2 years have passed since the proposal of the diagnostic criteria for IgG4-related kidney disease (IgG4-RKD). The aim of this study was to estimate the number of histological diagnosis for IgG4-RKD throughout Japan and to clarify the regional distribution of the development of this disease. Methods A questionnaire was supplied to 140 research facilities ...

Familial Mediterranean fever is no longer a rare disease in Japan

Background The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical manifestations and prevalence of familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) in Japanese patients with unexplained fever and rheumatic manifestations. Methods We enrolled 601 patients with unexplained fever or suspected FMF throughout Japan between 2009 and 2015. Patients were divided into three groups according to Tel Hashomer ...

Effect of Proteinuria and Glomerular Filtration Rate on Renal Outcome in Patients with Biopsy-Proven Benign Nephrosclerosis

Background Reduced estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and proteinuria are risk factors for end-stage renal disease (ESRD), of which benign nephrosclerosis is a common cause. However, few biopsy-based studies have assessed these associations. Methods We performed retrospective cohort study of 182 Japanese patients who underwent renal biopsy from June 1985 through March 2014 ...

Recovery of renal function after glucocorticoid therapy for IgG4-related kidney disease with renal dysfunction

Background Although renal dysfunction in IgG4-related kidney disease (IgG4-RKD) shows rapid resolution with glucocorticoid therapy, little is known about the appropriate initial glucocorticoid dose for induction therapy or long-term renal outcome. Methods We retrospectively examined the differences in recovery of renal function according to the dose of glucocorticoid used for ...

Renal prognosis a long time after renal biopsy on patients with diabetic nephropathy

Background A new classification of diabetic nephropathy was reported by Tervaert et al., but the association between pathological findings and the clinical outcomes remains unclear.

Quality of life of patients with ADPKD—Toranomon PKD QOL study: cross-sectional study

Background The quality of life (QOL) of patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) has not been investigated well. This study was performed to clarify the QOL of patients with ADPKD and to identify factors that affected their QOL. Methods The present cross-sectional study is part of a prospective observational study on the QOL of ADPKD patients. Patients ...

Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis and circulating cryoglobulins

Background Previous studies on membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN) and cryoglobulinemic glomerulopathy (CG) were based upon case series that were performed before hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection was routinely investigated. Therefore, it remains unknown how far HCV contributes to MPGN or CG, and there have only been a few reports about HCV-negative idiopathic MPGN. ...

Myeloperoxidase-antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-associated crescentic glomerulonephritis in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease

Background Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is an inherited disorder that is characterized by the development of cysts in the kidneys and other organs. Urinary protein excretion is usually less than 1 g/day, and ADPKD is rarely associated with nephrotic syndrome or rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (RPGN). To date, myeloperoxidase (MPO)-antineutrophil ...
