Frequency of COL4A3/COL4A4 mutations amongst families segregating glomerular microscopic hematuria and evidence for activation of the unfolded protein response. Focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis is a frequent development during ageing. - PloS one
Familial glomerular hematuria(s) comprise a genetically heterogeneous group of conditions which include Alport Syndrome (AS) and thin basement membrane nephropathy (TBMN). Here we investigated 57 Greek-Cypriot families presenting glomerular microscopic hematuria (GMH), with or without proteinuria or chronic kidney function decline, but excluded classical AS. We specifically searched the COL4A3/A4 genes and identified 8 heterozygous mutations in 16 families (28,1%). Eight non-related families featured the founder mutation COL4A3-p.(G1334E). Renal biopsies from 8 patients showed TBMN and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). Ten patients (11.5%) reached end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) at ages ranging from 37-69-yo (mean 50,1-yo). Next generation sequencing of the patients who progressed to ESKD failed to reveal a second mutation in any of the COL4A3/A4/A5 genes, supporting that true heterozygosity for COL4A3/A4 mutations predisposes to CRF/ESKD. Although this could be viewed as a milder and late-onset form of autosomal dominant AS, we had no evidence of ultrastructural features or extrarenal manifestations that would justify this diagnosis. Functional studies in cultured podocytes transfected with wild type or mutant COL4A3 chains showed retention of mutant collagens and differential activation of the unfolded protein response (UPR) cascade. This signifies the potential role of the UPR cascade in modulating the final phenotype in patients with collagen IV nephropathies.
Four cases of nafcillin-associated acute interstitial nephritis in one institution. - Nature clinical practice. Nephrology
Over the course of 1 year, four patients in a single institution developed acute kidney injury most likely secondary to nafcillin-associated acute interstitial nephritis, indicating that this complication might not be as rare as is commonly believed. The main case presented here is that of a 73-year-old man with a history of chronic low back pain who presented with worsening back pain, as well as nausea, vomiting and volume depletion. Imaging studies revealed a soft tissue abscess in the left psoas major muscle.Physical examination, complete urine analysis, blood and urine cultures, measurement of peripheral eosinophil and plasma creatinine levels, and renal ultrasound.Nafcillin-associated acute interstitial nephritis.Discontinuation of nafcillin and provision of supportive care.
